A nice chocolate fig cake recipe to try !

Chocolate Fig Cake Recipe Ingredients.
  • 250g butter, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) water
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup (35g) cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup (100g) dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup glace ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup dried figs, finely chopped
  • 1 2/3 cups (250g) plain flour, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon bi-carbonate of soda (bi-carb soda)
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger powder
Baking Temperature: The oven should be preheated to 160oC (325oF).

Chocolate Fig Cake Recipe INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine the butter, water, sugar, cocoa powder and chocolate together in a medium sized saucepan.
2. Place over gentle heat. Bring to the boil whilst stirring. You need to stir until everything has dissolved to stop the mix from burning. Be careful that the mix does not boil over.
3. Simmer gently for 5 minutes.
4. Remove from the heat. Add the glace ginger and figs. Cover with a lid and leave to cool to room temperature. To cool this quickly place the saucepan in a sink of cold water.
5. Whisk in gently the flour, bi-carb soda and ginger powder into the cooled liquid. Whisk until all lumps are removed. Do not over whisk; you are not trying to add air into the batter just remove any flour lumps.
6. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan. Remember the baking pan must be lined with non-stick baking paper. The batter will be quite liquid and will level naturally. Tap the tin on the kitchen bench three times to remove any large air bubbles.
7. Bake in a preheated oven set at 160oC (325oF) for 80 mins. The top of the cake will crack. Don’t worry the cracks will settle and will be hidden when you turn the cake out of the tin..
8. Make the honey caramel syrup while the cake is baking.
9. Remove from the oven. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins. Gently and very carefully turn out the chocolate fig and ginger cake on to your serving plate.
10. Decorate your chocolate fig and ginger cake with the extra glace ginger and figs if desired.
11. Top the chocolate fig cake with the honey caramel sauce. Save some of the sauce to serve with the sliced chocolate fig cake...nice ! Enjoy it !

Chocolate Fig Cake Recipe INGREDIENTS
The chocolate mousse filling-
  • -500 g silken tofu
  • -2 dl or 3/4 cups caster sugar
  • - 7 tbls agar-agar
  • - 2 dl or 3/4 cups water
  • -300 grams semi-sweet chocolate or sweet chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate will give this cake a richer taste
  • -2 tsp of vanilla extract
Topping-
  • -280 grams of (fig) jam
  • -200 grams of semi-sweet chocolate
Chocolate Fig Cake Recipe INSTRUCTIONS Start by lining your the bottom layer of your pan with baking paper cut into a round shape so that it fits as perfectly as possible.

Melt your cake base chocolate and then pour it into your cake pan. Put it in your fridge so that it settles. Meanwhile you can make your chocolate mousse filling.

Melt the filling chocolate and pour it into a mixing bowl together with your silken tofu, vanilla extract and caster sugar, mix everything together.

Pour the water into a saucepan and add your agar-agar, let them boil together for about 5 minutes stirring constantly. Use the agar-agar flakes, which are prepared a bit differently than agar-agar powder for example so it is important to check the instructions on your agar-agar packet and follow them. Pour the agar-agar mixture into your mixing bowl and mix it together with the silken tofu and chocolate, be fast and thorough.

By now your cake base should have settled, if it has settled pour the filling on top of it. Put the cake in the fridge again and let it sit for a couple of hours or overnight. After you have let it sit you can spread the jam on top of it carefully, don´t break the mousse. Then melt your topping chocolate and pour it on top of the cake, be careful once again and try to make the layer as thin as possible. Let it sit in the fridge until the topping sets.

Decorate the cake before serving with some chocolate decorations or figs. The chocolate fig cake recipe is ready...nice one !
