Using electric whisk beat 120 gr of soften butter with the sugar until you get a white mixture. Add the eggs, one at a time, with a pinch of salt, always beating. Pour the sifted flour with the baking powder and cocoa alternating with the milk, so that you will get a smooth and soft dough.

Cut the figs to little cubes and add to the dough that you’ll pour inside a greased plumcake mold with a strip of baking paper on the bottom. Level the surface and spread with the candied citrum cutted into little cubes. Bake at 180 °C for about 45 minutes.

In the meantime warm the cream; remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate, beating to mix well the mixture. Remove the cake from the mold, let it cool on a wire rack and cut in slices.
Serve with the white chocolate cream lightly spread with grated nutmeg.

For a more fine alternative, you can substitute the nutmeg with the Pécan nut.
