Fig Cake With Apricot Kernels

Ingredients:

  • 25 good quality, dried figs
  • 25 apricot kernels or almonds
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons – melted, hot ghee
  • 2 tablespoons – rose water

Instructions:

  1. Finely chop figs.
  2. Place them in a food processor, add honey and process until figs are smooth.
  3. Add the ghee and rose water (acts as lubricants) in-between for easy grinding. A powerful food processor is essential for smooth end product.
  4. Remove and divide the fig paste into two equal portions.
  5. Mold each into a ball and flatten using hands or rolling pin into equal sized rounds of one inch thickness. Place apricot kernels in rows on one round.
  6. Place the second round on top of it.
  7. Press them together like sandwich. If the cake is too sticky, few hours of refrigeration helps to firm it up.
  8. Cut and serve.

Dense and rich, this fig treat is a sweet mesmerizer.
