I just can’t get enough of fresh figs! This is such a super light and delicious polenta cake that uses these gorgeous seasonal figs combined with honey and orange blossom and the result is just figyyliciously good!

How to Make Fresh Figs & Orange Polenta Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease your skillet with butter or oil
  2. Remove the stems from the figs and slice evenly into rounds and arrange on the base of the skillet
  3. In a large bowl, combine well the cornmeal, ground almonds, flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt
  4. Add the orange zest, sugar, oil, orange juice, milk, yogurt and orange blossom extract and whisk well until lump free
  5. Pour the batter over the figs in the skillet
  6. Bake for 30-40 mins until a skewer comes out clean
  7. Let the cake rest on a cooling rack for 5-10 mins and then carefully turn upside down.
  8. Meanwhile make the syrup by whisking the ingredients together, try it for sweetness – I don’t like cakes that are too sweet but add a little extra sweetness if you prefer. Drizzle the orange syrup over the cake whilst it is still warm
