Taky’s Classic Cakes (4): Dry Figs and Walnuts Tart

The Japan Blog List

Please check the new postings at:
sake, shochu and sushi



As predicted before, not only Taky’s came up with another creation for the pleasure of my students!
Dry Figs and Wanuts Tart!


Again this tart is a creation for the pleasure of adults more than that of younger customers.
The top, layered with a very thin layer of syrup, is covered with slices of dry figs, orange peels and slices of dry apricot which have been marinated in dark rum.
Under them a very elegant marzipan contains walnuts and raisins over over an elefant and thin crispy pastry.
a very compex cake as a succession of flavours appear over the palate thanks to the different kinds of fruit included.

To eat slowly with a great English tea!

  1. Dear Ricardo!
    Greetings again!
    It is a bit unusual in concept for us Caucasians, but very Japanese in design!
    The cake is a beauty and very fulfilling incidentally!
