Peach Fig Cake

I have been a big fan of breakfast cake this summer. I actually prefer a cake that has minimal sugar, which is exactly what this cake provides. Best, naturally with coffee.

Recipe makes one 9 inch cake pan. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

  • 2 1/2 Cups of flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cups melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8-10 fresh figs
  • 1 peach thinly sliced

Butter the cake pan and dust with flour. In a medium bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt. In a smaller bowl mix together buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until just combined, don’t over mix, if the batter is a little lumpy don’t worry. Spoon the batter into the cake pan, and top with the fresh fruit. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until just slightly golden brown on top.
