Sweet figs

I managed to get a few soft and sweet figs from our tree before the birds got to them. We had to put a net around the tree. I don't mind sharing our fruit and vegetables with worms, ants, crickets, birds, squirrels and what ever animals that live in our back yard, I don't like when they don't share with me. Last time we didn't get to eat even one fig, no more! No wonder they didn't want to share, the figs are so tasty, they melt in your mouth.

Chocolate (and cinnamon) Krantz Cake

I love the combination of yeasted dough, and chocolate and cinnamon melting together. I followed this recipe by Yotam Ottolenghi from Jerusalem: A Cookbook with a few changes. • I used 4 1/4 cups of flour and instant yeast for the dough • I didn't use any lemon or orange zest • I didn't use nuts, and I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to the filling • I baked both cakes at 375º F for 30 minutes per the recipe instructions, but they weren't baked all the way through. After the cakes cooled down, I preheated the oven to 350º F and baked them for 25 minutes. Next time I'll bake the cakes at 350º for about 45 minutes or so. Here you can find some notes about the cake. Enjoy.
