Fig and Date Cake
Hi there! Today it's my first recipe here on this site. Because I had at home a huge lot of dried figs and dates I decided to make something including all these dried fruits. I don't like them just like this - it's too dry and kinda sweet so I had to mix them up with some other ingredients and in the end it was a great cake. During the preparation itself I noticed I didn't have the grated gingerbread. So went to the shop to buy it. Unfortunately they didn't have it. It was really upsetting 'cause the other nearest shop is really far far away. Finaly my helpful sister went there and bought it. So it was allright.
I'm not sure whether it's possible to buy a gingerbread for grating in your country. I think the situation is the same as with the butter spray here in Czechia. So if you're not able to buy it there you can substitute it with homemade old gingerbread - it should be quite tough 'cause thanks to the heavy cream in the cake it'll become pretty soft and chewy.
Now I think it's time to show you the recipe itself :)
