  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Spray a 9" cake pan with cooking spray, then line it with parchment paper (this will prevent excessive browning and sticking).
  • Trim the stem off the tops of the figs and slice them in half. Set aside.
  • Beat together the olive oil, honey and eggs. Whisk in the dry ingredients until you have a smooth batter.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Arrange the figs on top of the cake, inside face up. Whatever pattern you want is fine!
  • Pop the cake in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes, until its golden brown and cooked through (use the cake tester method to check). If it starts to brown too quickly on top, cover it with foil.
  • Remove the cake from the pan then let it cool completely. Slice and serve!
