Butter & Fruit Gingerbread Cake with Fig Frosting
1 1/2 c
dark brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp
raisins, yellow and purple
red currants (can substitute with cherries)
zest of half a lemon
juice of half a lemon
FIG CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
sherry or brandy
lemon zest to taste
2Cream brown sugar and butter for 3 minutes. Add egg yolks and vanilla and beat for additional two minutes.
8To make frosting, place figs and brandy in small saucepan, just to plump and absorb liquid. Transfer to blender and puree. Reserve.
12I chose to do two circular, different size baking dishes. On the bottom layer, cut flat after totally cooled. Leave top peaked for unique design. Frost entire bottom layer. Place on second, finish frosting.
