Christmas Ball 3 Espresso Cake

Espresso Cake

ingredients

1 cup walnuts, chopped
½ cup brewed espresso or strong coffee
1 box of a 2 spice cake mix (I like to use Duncan Hines)
1 pound dried figs, cleaned & trimmed
1and ¾ cups water
Sifted powdered sugar (later)

directions

Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Generously grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt / or a tube pan. In a saucepan bring figs and water to a boil. Remove from heat cover and let stand, 10 minutes. In a food processor chop up figs.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions, substituting the fig mixture for the water.
Stir in walnuts. Pour into Bundt pan.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan; set on wire rack, put something under this to catch anything that might leek or spill. Poke holes all over cake and spoon brewed espresso/coffee over the cake. Cool cake to room temperature and wrap in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Before you are ready to serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar.






This is a great recipe because you can use a box mixture. It is great as a pot-luck, or Church gathering (in fact I got this recipe from the pastors wife at my church!!!)
