Fresh Raspberry & Figs Cake

I was browsing through a recipe book and came across this fruity cake made of fresh raspberry and fresh figs. I never try fresh figs before! hahaha I only uses dried figs for brewing soups or just as snacks. Therefore I reminded myself to get hold of some fresh figs when they are in season :D Yes you don't always see fresh figs in the supermarket.  Love the combination of these two fruits, a good balance of sweet and sourish taste in this fruity cake.

Such a gorgeous and expensive cake! Raspberries and figs are very expensive over here. I do have a fig plant, which is fruiting now, but the fruits are rather small in size.
Thanks for sharing with CYB!
