The feast of St Martin of Tours is celebrated on November 11 the. St Martin's feast comes at a time when walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts and dried figs are abundant in Malta. There are many traditional recipes involving these ingredients named after this Saint. The St Martin's cake is one of these popular recipes.
Mix sugar and butter till light and fluffy. Beat eggs and add them to the mixture. Sieve self-raising flour and add it with the mixed spice and the ground cloves. Add them to the mixture little by little. Pour milk and the vanilla essence and mix slowly. Add slowly the walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts and last the dried figs. If the mixture will be a little dry, you can add some more milk to be creamy but not too runny. Grease a 26cm baking tin and cover the base and all around the tin with baking paper. Grease the baking paper as well. Pour the mixture in the tin and with the back of the spoon arrange the surface of the cake. Bake on moderate oven on 180c for 1hr 15 minutes or when it's golden brown and from inside it will be ready. You can test it with a small wooden kebab stick and it has to be clean when you take it out. Leave it to cool, and to decorate sprinkle some icing sugar and some nuts. Enjoy, it's really delicious -)
