Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments about us being in the news and about our open sky store . We LOVED hearing from OUR readers So thanks for all those comments, it really helped brighten our day even more !!!!!!
3 cups soaked dried whole almonds, grind into flour
¼ cup whole pistachios, grind into flour
1 cup roughly chopped figs, about 8 (we used calimyrna figs)
one zest of an orange (optional)
¼ cup coconut oil
good pinch sea salt
Place the almonds and pistachios into food processor first and pulse together
Next grab your chopped figs
Place figs into food processor along with the remaining ingredients.
Pulse together till everything starts coming together and looking like a light batter but holding together.
Press batter into 9 in circle spring form pan
Save ½ cup of cake layer for topping and add in:
¼ cup maple sugar
¼ cup pistachios
You will use this as the final topping
This is the maple sugar we used. This is our first time using this sugar before in our recipes. We have also wanted to give it a try and we thought this recipe would be a perfect time We really like the texture and taste of this sugar.
Now for the middle layer: Creme Layer
We just used our favorite raw cheesecake recipe. You can use any un-baked cheesecake recipe you like or you could even use ice cream instead to make it more of a frozen treat
Once you decide or make what to use for the creme layer pour it on top of the bottom cake layer in pan.
Next top the creme layer with your remaining maple sugar pistachio topping!
Cover the whole dessert!
Place your almond pistachio fig creme cake into the freezer to set for a few hours.
Time to devour enjoy
Love all the layers and different textures in this cake. So pretty!!
This cake is full of vitamins, minerals and FLAVOR
LOVED IT! I really liked how the figs and pistachios all went together so nicely! Boy, I am craving this cake again…. maybe I need to make it again here soon
Now go get some pistachios and figs and make this cake! Remember you could even try it as an ice cream cake and use ice cream as the middle layer! This recipe is easy to make and there is no need to turn on your oven during these hot summer days to make it! Bonus!
