yogurt fig cake

This is again a surprising recipe. It calls for ingredients such as eggs, sugar, Greek yogurt, lemon zest&juice, orange blossom water, and figs. Only 3 tbs of flour are necessary and there is no need for butter or oil. The recipe attracted me and the ending result totally convinced me. To give you an idea, this cake stands somewhere between the Japanese cheesecake and the flan breton. If you're happy enough to still find some fresh figs, you should give this recipe a try. Right away. Do not wait.
