Sometimes the best flavor combinations are completely unexpected. Figs and coffee. It’s a brilliant pairing.
I wouldn’t love a breakfast consisting of a hot cup of coffee and fresh figs — though, independently, they are both delicious.
You see, I prefer to combine fresh figs and coffee . . . in a cake. And coincidentally, I do love cake with my coffee. (Sure, even for breakfast.)
I’ve been wanting to make an up side down cake with figs for a while now. I knew the top (or bottom, if you will), would be gorgeous. And when Dave’s Coffee posted a picture of a tasting of one of their Coffee Syrups drizzled over fresh figs, I immediately knew this is where my recipe would begin. And off I went to the kitchen.
Oh, and don’t forget . . . .
