  • 1 cup roughly chopped figs, about 8 (we used calimyrna figs)

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 :)

july blog 2010 405 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.

My slice!

july blog 2010 486 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!

Other news:

Check out our Twin Cakes Bakery 25% Sale on ALL SNACK BITES ! The snack bites are great for traveling, mid-afternoon snacks, a sweet treat after dinner, or anytime you feel like a little something special ;) Our snack bites are different than most snacks on the market because we use dates and stevia as our sweeteners and use no nuts. We love eating our snack bites straight from the fridge or freezer to make a nice rich cold treat! Though you can bring them out to room temperature before hand.

Looking forward to socca sunday! Time for us to get back in the kitchen and start baking for our farmers markets tomorrow! We made some special flavors for this weeks markets like our un-baked mesquite banana bar (our favorite) and gluten free vegan banana almond muffins, cinnamon raisin peach muffins and lemon pistachio scones :)

Till next time,
