So if you know me you know me you know I NEVER bake lol
But for some reason I saw figs in the fridge and I was inspired to make something.
I also wanted to surprise my mummy for my birthday Alhamdulillah (Praise To Allah). 
I kind of rolled with it and came up with this yummy cake.
I hope this cake inspires you,
if you have a go to sponge recipe go with that, 
trust me that's what I do.
Also I did 2 split pans and I had extra batter left so I made
 mini versions of the cake but in cupcakes.

    1. Thank you so much, you can also use the tin fig in syrup mix if you can't find fresh figs. I think you can use a vanilla cake mix with the fresh fig pulp as well :P
