Made using a classic Spanish recipe, this traditional Spanish cake is made of sweet figs pressed with meaty almonds, for a dense, delicious treat that you can pair with a cheese plate or a cup of coffee. The ingredients are simple and delicious – almonds, dried figs and a few choice seasonings, for a healthy snack or accompaniment to hard Spanish cheeses.
This is a traditional treat in Spain during the fall, when a surplus of sweet Spanish figs are sun-dried and pressed to enjoy for the rest of the year. The crunch of the almonds is a welcome addition to the dense, chewy texture and the concentrated flavors of the fruit. Just cut a piece and serve with aged sheep and goat’s milk cheeses, paired with a glass of full bodied red wine. Of course, it's equally suitable for a healthy snack on the go or as dessert.
