Fig and Raspberry Cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing


I have a bit of an obsession with figs at the moment, and I keep reading about how good they are for you, hence why I keep using them in my cakes. With the addition of raspberries and fresh orange zest, you might even be able to say this is a healthy cake. To make the dried figs more plump and juicy, I rehydrated them in simmering orange juice. It makes them deliciously sticky and sweet, which offers a nice contrast to the tart raspberries.

Ingredients:

butter
sugar
organic eggs
flour
baking powder
milk
vanilla extract
figs soaked in orange juice
raspberries
orange

Icing:

white chocolate
cream cheese
