Figs pie

  • 3 large eggs
  • 120 grams (4.2 ounces) sugar
  • 200 grams (7 ounces) sour cream
  • 100 milliliters (0.42 cups) vegetable oil
  • 230 grams (8.1 ounces) all-purpose flour
  • 10 grams (0.35 ounces) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Mixing Bowls

    Use different sizes to manage both wet and dry ingredients separately. Stainless steel or glass bowls work best.

  • Whisk

    A strong wire whisk is essential for getting a smooth mixture. Invest in one with a comfortable grip.

  • Sifter

    A good sifter ensures your flour and baking powder are well-mixed and free of lumps. It’s a small tool that makes a big difference!

  • Baking Tin

    Choose a non-stick baking tin to make sure your pie comes out easily. Greasing it with butter and a light dusting of flour is key.

  • Oven

    Ensure your oven is preheated to the correct temperature for optimal baking. An oven thermometer is handy to verify this.


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 180-200°C (356-392°F). Preheating ensures your pie bakes evenly.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the **eggs** together with the **sugar**, **sour cream**, **vegetable oil**, and **vanilla extract** until smooth and well combined. Use a hand mixer or whisk for best results.

Step 3

In another bowl, sift together the **flour** and **baking powder**. Sifting helps remove any lumps and incorporates air into the flour.

Step 4

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix to keep the batter light.

Step 5

Grease your baking tin with butter and lightly dust it with flour. Pour in the batter. This helps prevent the pie from sticking to the tin.

Step 6

Spread the sliced figs on top of the batter. You can sprinkle with spices and almond petals if desired. Add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg for extra flavor.

Step 7

Bake the pie in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Keep an eye on the pie towards the end of the baking time to avoid overcooking.

Step 8

Allow the pie to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before serving. Cooling helps the pie set and makes it easier to cut.

  • Why did my pie turn out too dense?

    This can happen if the batter is overmixed. Once the wet and dry ingredients are combined, mix just until they are incorporated.

  • How can I tell if my pie is done baking?

    Insert a toothpick into the center of the pie. If it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, your pie is ready!

  • What type of figs should I use?

    Dried figs can work, but fresh figs deliver the best flavor and texture for this pie.

  • How do I prevent the figs from sinking to the bottom?

    Coat the figs lightly in flour before placing them on top of the batter. This helps them stay suspended during baking.

  • Can I prepare the pie in advance?

    Yes, you can prepare and refrigerate the batter up to one day in advance. The baked pie also stores well for up to 2 days in the fridge.

  • How can I make the pie more decorative?

    Arranging the figs in a spiral pattern on top of the pie before baking can add a beautiful touch. You can also sprinkle some almond petals or powdered sugar once baked.
