Sweet, vegan, perfect for Lent – no need to turn it into a riddle, fig jam cupcake is the right answer. And the recipe of Mate Kitchen it’s easy, economical, quick, and you don’t have to go plant-based or fast to whip it up, just cut off a big piece and eat it while it’s still warm. Let’s face it, cupcakes are an amazing treat, but they’re second to none when they’re warm. You’ll probably also open a bucket of yogurt or make yourself a cup of herbal tea. So warming and calming, the pleasure of the simple things.
Mate Kitchen found the recipe for this fig jam cupcake from grandma’s notebook. A typical recipe that is prepared with whatever is in the cupboard – flour, water, oil, some walnuts and a jar of jam, soda and baking powder and you’re done. This time it is made of figs, but you can make the cake with strawberry or prune jam with the same success. Each of them will give a unique taste.
If you do not like the cake to be lean, you can replace the water with fresh milk. And don’t forget to rinse the jam jar with some of it. Not an ounce of this magic should be wasted.
Fig jam is so special that we don’t allow ourselves to “waste” it to make sweets with it. We serve it with strained yogurt or on a slice with butter. However, the truth is that it is an indispensable product that makes ordinary cookies extraordinary. The cupcake, as you will see for yourself, is also amazing. You can turn it into a tart or add a fig to yogurt with oats and flax seeds and give yourself a delicious and healthy breakfast.
Method of preparation:
1. In a large bowl, mix the fig jam, water and oil.
2. Add the sugar, baking powder and soda. Whisk until all ingredients are combined.
3. Add the flour to the liquid mixture in portions and mix until it is completely absorbed. Pour the crushed walnuts into the resulting cake mixture and mix.
4. Transfer the mixture to a cake tin covered with baking paper and bake at 170 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a stick comes out dry.
