 ½ teaspoon of baking soda 

 1/3 cup vegetable oil

How to Make Chocolate Fig Cake 


Preheat your oven to 350F degrees/180C degrees. Grease well a 12-inch springform pan and set it aside. 


Dissolve cocoa powder in boiling water and let it cool slightly. 


In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking soda. 


In another large mixing bowl, combine egg, egg yolk, sugar, vegetable oil, dissolved cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Add in the dry ingredients and stir well with the help of a spatula. Be careful to not over mix the batter. Pour in the batter into the prepared springform pan and bake the chocolate cake for about 30 minutes or do a toothpick check.


While the cake is still hot from the oven, glaze it with dulce de leche sauce over the top of the cake. Let it cool and cut out one slice. Serve it on a plate with few fresh figs and enjoy.
