Mitica® Fig Almond Cake
  • by Mitica®
  • Spain

Fruity and sweet, the Mitica® Fig Almond Cake is fudgy and dense with a crunch from the addition of Marcona almonds. Made with real Spanish Pajarero figs from Extremadura, it’s a gluten-free snack that is moist and chewy, with a burst of dried fruit flavor. Perfect for cheese boards or as a dessert, it pairs well with Spanish cheeses like Valdeon and Manchego, or a handful of mixed olives.

“Crunchy, sweet, and chewy, this cake has a lot going on considering it contains just two ingredients. It’s very versatile and pairs well with just about any cheese. I like it with a slice of Manchego for a true taste of Spain.”
