FIG ALMOND CAKE
For a simple yet very sweet addition to your cheese board or dessert spread, Sweet Laurel's Fig Almond Cake is perfect! With a slight hint of cinnamon, and natural sweetness of dried figs, the taste is heavenly. This cake is raw, therefore no oven is required, making this the perfect summer treat. I often travel with this cake, as it's nutrient density makes it perfect for snacking when you need quick energy. Enjoy!
