Finally, a cake that’s the perfect complement to a cheese board! If you love cheese boards, figs and wine as much as I do, you’ll love this cake! My honey and fig cake is sweetened with honey, fig preserves and topped with sweet, ripe figs and more honey. This recipe yields a tender, delicate cake that melts in your mouth! I love to serve this fig cake warm with a side of extra honey, fresh figs and a wheel of brie cheese. The brie cheese adds a delicious flavor profile to this recipe that you won’t want to miss out on. Enjoy my fig cake after dinner with a glass of wine, or in the morning with a cup of coffee. It’s the perfect cake to wrap up an evening with!

This cake is also great to make ahead of time. Just let it cool completely on a wire rack, then wrap very well with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven, then top with fresh figs, honey and brie cheese when you’re ready to serve!
