  • Summary

    Cook the figs until just softened: Overcooking or intense boiling will render them tough instead of lush.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 1 cup superfine sugar, divided, plus more for pan
    • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
    • 1 1/2 cups blanched hazelnuts
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 6 large eggs, separated
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    • 2/3 cup Calvados (apple brandy)
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 cups dried black Mission figs or pitted prunes (about 8 ounces), halved if large
