I get the feeling that people are in the love or hate camp when it comes to figs; If you’re in the love camp, this Fig & Almond Cake is definitely for you.
Because it’s so lightly sweetened, it’s not a terrible idea for breakfast, and is perfect with tea. It’s also surprisingly simple to make, requiring less effort than you might guess based on how gorgeous it is! Since it’s also just as wonderful when made a day ahead, it’s a great dessert to end a dinner party with.
