Fresh Fig Cake
Inspired by my Brown Turkey fig tree's bumper crop of early summer figs (the breba crop), I scouted around for something to do with this windfall. My sister pointed me toward this recipe. As others have said, this is an uncomplicated, delicious cake that relies on its simplicity. Everything I thought of to "improve" the recipe, I believe would just make it more like other cakes, rendering it mundane and predictable. The cake is dense, almost bread-like, much like the "sweet spot" that occurs when a cake falls. There's not much leavening in this cake—a little baking powder and an egg—so don't expect thick layers. Be careful not to overcook the cake; mine never got "golden brown" on the top despite cooking it an extra few minutes. I noticed that the sides were starting to pull back from the pan and it was indeed done. The cake is delicious warm or cold and in addition to dessert, it makes a fine weekend breakfast served alone or with a wedge of cheese or a sausage. Five stars!

Yeast Raised Christmas Waffles
Made these for a small Christmas brunch. I'd never tried yeast waffles but found this recipe delicious and very forgiving. Good thing. My yeast was old and I didn't separate the eggs (beat them till foamy), but the results were excellent. My grown daughter said they were the best she'd ever had. I cooked them in a Kitchenaid waffle maker for 4 minutes and that seemed right. The batter is more like dough, so be sure to have something to scoop it out as it won't pour very easily.
