☼ seasons

when your local market or supermarket 
sells good things
it's time to find a recipe to bake
not with these huge juicy grapes 
but with figs

fig & almond torte {gluten free}

you will need ....

2 figs, thinly sliced
75g unsalted butter ~ heated in a pan, browned and cooled
150g ground almonds
80ml honey
a teaspoon ground ginger
a dash of vanilla extract
an egg yolk
flaked almonds
grease a 7" round loose bottomed tin
in a large bowl mix all the ingredients
except for figs and flaked almonds

put this mixture into the greased tin
spreading it evenly
top with the sliced figs 
sprinkle with flaked almonds
and put in the freezer for 30 minutes

preheat the oven to 150c/ gas 2
bake the torte for 25-30 minutes until golden
leave to cool completely in the tin
 delicious on it's own or with cream
