How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 6-cup mini Bundt pan with spray.

Step 2

Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg inside a large bowl. Whisk egg, egg white, yogurt, and oil inside a separate bowl.

Step 3

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring until just blended. Fold zucchini and figs into batter. Pour batter into pan.

Step 4

Bake until a wooden skewer or toothpick inserted in to the center of a cake arrives with a few moist crumbs attached (40 to 45 minutes). Let cool 5 minutes, then transfer to some wire rack for cooling completely. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
