Today I shared with you my Crumbled cake with coffee, elderflower and figs!
The pastry is made with two types of flour, that of rice and that of almonds. Flavored with instant coffee, chopped figs and elderflower, then stuffed with a delicious and sweet sugar free fig cream.
You know that I don’t use butter in my desserts but only extra virgin olive oil or rice. This time I used extra virgin olive oil, because I like the intended flavor it releases in cooking. Mixed with coffee and almond you will have a flavored dessert that will leave the palate more than satisfied!
Would you like to serve it as a dessert at the end of a meal? Then serve it with a sambuca flavored cream. (Find the recipe in the tips).
Believe me, your guests will love it.
Now I leave you to the recipe for gluten free crumbled coffee, elderflower and figs!
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Cut 3 figs and pieces and caramelize them in a pan with a little water. When they have softened, transfer them to a blender and blend until they form a cream. As soon as the cream is ready, leave it aside.
In a bowl, add all the dry ingredients. Mix with your hands. Pour in the egg white and oil, continue with a fork to incorporate the ingredients well. Start working with your hands to make the crumbled dough. Cut the rest of the figs into small pieces and add them to the dough.
Line an 18 cm mold with baking paper, transfer half of the dough, compact the bottom well with your hands. Pour over the fig cream and spread it all over the base with a spoon. Pour over the other half of the dough. Make sure that all points are closed. Cook at 180 degrees for 35 minutes.
After the time has elapsed, leave the crumbled cake in the oven for a few more minutes and then take it out of the oven. Transfer it to a wire rack and let it cool completely.
Your gluten free crumble cake with coffee, elderflower and figs is ready.
