Fresh Fig Cake

Fresh figs are something I can literally never resist when I see them at the store. They look so beautiful and rustic, has such a unique flavour, sweet but not too sweet, has a soft and gooey texture, almost like eating a chewy cookie. Is that a fair description?

Anyhow, this is a gorgeous and simple cake adorned with the gem of all fruits- Figs! Perfect cake to make if you love having something sweet for breakfast or you can even enjoy it with a good cuppa in the evening.
