Fig, Plum and Almond Cake (vegan & flourless)

Is it a tart or a cake – I’m opting for cake (I think). Anyway it has a lovely rich almondy base, a layer of sticky figs and then topped with fresh figs & plums. So delicious!

I love using these beautiful seasonal fruits and I think it pairs really well with almond – but then I love almond desserts so maybe I’m a bit biased? 

As an added bonus it’s completely flourless and therefore gluten-free.

I love to serve it with some creamy coconut yogurt or vegan vanilla ice cream and its perfect for breakfast as well as a dessert.

I hope you enjoy xxx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
