Spanish Fig and Almond Cake

Big adult fig cookie.

In Spain, they might call this "fig bread." Originating from the Middle East centuries ago, sweet treats like this fig cake are as much a part of Spain's gastronomic identity as Jamón Serrano or piquillo pimientos.

From Valencia, this fig and almond cake is made from pajarero figs and Marcona almonds. Pressed till it's about 3/4 inch thick, it's dense, sweet, not at all bitter.

Slice and enjoy alongside a sliver of well aged Manchego, or chop it up for salads or ice cream. Or do they like do in Spain and have some as a snack alongside a small cup of black coffee.
