Fresh Figs upside down cake

Figs have been in season since some time now. Even though their season is not so long, atleast here in Stockholm we don’t get it for more than a month or two. I have been picking them from the super market. Also, thought of making something with them, but they are so melt in mouth that I can’t keep my hands off. I was in the grocery shop over the weekend and saw the figs again. Back of mind I was planning for Abhisek’s b’day and I picked them thinking, “will do something with these”, but I still had no clue about the ‘what’.

Was surfing the Internet looking for his b’day dinner and cake. Found a lot of upside down cakes, such as pineapple, apple, plum, etc and there it was. I decided that I will take him on a trip to middle east. So, here is what I did, a fig upside down cake, which is also eggless. It is packed with the nutrition of figs, the richness of caramel sauce and the goodness of cinnamon. What else can one ask for? The cake turned out better than my expectations. Absolutely delectable! And, Abhisek, don’t ask about him. I am sure I am getting the demand for another bake soon.

With the sweet tooth that I and Abhisek have, we need quick fix desserts a lot of times. But, we just cannot do with the ordinary. I mean like always!! Naaah!!!

So, I keep surfing different blogs for yummy desserts and stumbled upon this wonderful yet quick Greek dessert. And, it was love at first sight. It is simple yet exotic. The name says it all 😉
