Friends, it’s the week of Thanksgiving! Are you ready?

Enjoy this Cinnamon Fig Yogurt Cake with out-of-town guests, for breakfast or brunch (or a tea party:) It was 2 years ago I went to Downtown Abbey, and had the best “tea” of my life!

A beautiful prayer to read around the Thanksgiving table, I’m sharing with you today. In our communion groups at church, where people meet all over Bend, Oregon, once a week for a delicious potluck and a rich time of fellowship, we start our time together with a prayer. And we end with communion and The Lord’s Prayer.

This Thanksgiving Prayer sums up our blessings, our existence, our love for others, our goals and future, and it offers up hope for everyone seated at the table.

How beautiful is that for everyone, to start off Thanksgiving with hope?

We will be reading this prayer this year around our table.

Will you join me?

Almighty God, Father of all mercies,
We your unworthy servants
give you most humble and hearty thanks
for all your goodness to us and to all people.

We bless you for our creation, preservation and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for your immeasurable love
in the redemption of the world
by our Lord Jesus Christ,
for the means of grace,
and for the hope of glory.

And give us, we pray,
such a sense of all your mercies
that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful, And that we show forth your praise,
not only with our lips but in our lives,
by giving up ourselves to your service,
And by walking before you in holiness
and righteousness all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit,
be all honor and glory
for ever and ever. Amen.

The General Prayer of Thanksgiving

Abby was home and made a delicious, not-too-overly-sweet Cinnamon Fig Yogurt Cake!

I am a fig lover, and this time of year there are so many fig options, from appetizers to desserts.

Slice the figs. Make the batter.

Bake and dust with powdered sugar.

So good!

Cinnamon Fig Yogurt Cake

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 fresh figs, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup plain whole fat Greek yogurt
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • Butter to grease pan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In medium bowl, mix sugar and egg yolks. Add in in flour, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, and yogurt, mixing until smooth.
    In separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites into the sugar, egg, and flour batter. In order to preserve the fluffiness, don’t over-mix.
  3. Slice figs lengthwise into 3-4 slices.
  4. Grease a medium-sized baking dish with butter. Pour in batter and spread evenly. Layer figs lightly on top in rows.
  5. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the top is browned. The cake will rise with the heat and deflate as it cools. When done, remove from oven and allow to cool before dusting with powdered sugar.
