10 tablespoons of unsalted butter, room temp

1 1/2 cup of raw sugar

4 eggs whites

2/3 cup of half and half

2 1/2 teaspoons of baking power

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon of almond extract

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar


1/3 cup of chopped figs

In a bowl whisk together flour and baking powder

Cream together butter and sugar until light, followed by the extracts and mix until creamy

In another bowl whip together the egg whites, salt, and cream of tartar until stiff but not dry.

Now in a 3 to 2 ratio add flour and half and half, starting and ending with flour

Once smooth, now fold in egg whites, once combined

Pour into 3 greased and parchment-lined 9-inch cake pans

Bake for about 20 minutes until firm and toothpicks come out clean.

Let cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a rake to cool.


You will need a hand mixer.

Over a double boiler, mix all ingredients with a hand mixer until stiff white peaks form, about 7 minutes.
