Dates are an ubiquitous treat in Spain, so it’s no wonder they try to incorporate them to their baking. Enter this delicious Chocolate Fig Cake, made in Valencia by four brothers who follow artisan methods and use only the freshest produce.
The Valles brothers start with plump and sweet Pajarero figs that are hand pressed with luscious Swiss Lindt chocolate into a cake “torta” form. Pajareros are a type of fig that are found in the region of Extremadura, and are coveted for their sweet flavor and tender texture. They’re harvested by hand still and dried in the sun of Extremadura. Combined with Lindt, one of the finest chocolates in the world, this Torta De Higos y Chocolate is a flavorful treat that can be served for dessert, as a snack, or paired with some fresh goat cheese.
