Autumn Evenings Canvas Cake - Fig & Blueberry

   Yeah, yeah, I know, I posted a fig and chocolate porridge recipe last week and, what do you know, it's figs again. But I don't care. I made a pumpkin spice canvas cake last week, and now figs are in. And anyway, aren't you tired of pumpkin spice yet?
   This super simple fig & blueberry canvas cake has gorgeous evening tones - you know, the pink/purple/red sunsets streamed with gorgeous noctilucent clouds  - and the subtle sweetness of autumn fruits. It's absolutely delicious. And you only need 1 fig and some blueberries. I actually only had plain yogurt on hand, so I used 1/2 a teaspoon of freeze dried blueberry powder and mixed it in, but a blueberry yogurt or plain yogurt with blueberry gloop will work just as well, just churn it all up together!

   Made with the basic canvas cake base recipe, along with the pink flesh of one fig, scooped out and mashed into the mixture, 50g St Helen's Farm goat's milk yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon of Arctic Power wild blueberry powder, topped with 2 slices of fig (cut from the middle of the original fig before scooping out the remaining flesh) and a handful of blueberries.
