Gluten-Free Almond Fig Cake

Gluten-Free Almond Honey Fig Cake

Figs have two seasons – early summer and then mid-to-late summer through fall. Since we’re still in fall and able to find figs a plenty, let’s use them up to make a delicious Gluten-Free Almond Honey Fig Cake.

This cake is made with a few simple ingredients that you likely already have on hand – eggs, vanilla, salt, baking soda, and almond flour. The base is simple and is accented by the perfect amount of honey (I use organic honey from Wholesome) and speckled throughout with quartered fresh figs.

This cake is grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free, making it a healthier alternative to traditional cake.
