Figs and walnut plumcake


  • 250g Figs
  • 220g Flour
  • 80g Sugar
  • 8g Baking powder
  • 60g Walnut kernels
  • 100g Butter
  • 3 Eggs
  • Icing sugar


First of all melt the butter in a small pan.

Wash the figs and remove the ends, then cut them roughly into pieces without removing the peel.

Pour the eggs into a large bowl and whip them with the electric whisk gradually adding sugar until you get a foam and homogeneus mixture.

Sift the flour and baking powder inside the bowl, then mix with a spatula and add the melted butter too. Add figs and walnut and stir again.

Grease and flour a plumcake mold (20×11 cm) and pour inside the mixture obtained. Level the surface with the back of a spoon slightly moistened with water.

Bake in a static oven preheated to 180° for about 60 minutes. Once cooked, let it cool before removing it from the mold and serve it sliced with a sprinkling of icing sugar.
Buon appetito 🙂
