This Fig & Almond Traybake is really tasty and simple to make. It is the perfect Autumnal bake to make the most of delicious figs while they are in season.
Heat the oven to 160ºC (fan assisted, 180°C non fan) and line a square 8" (20cm) cake tin
Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes
Add the eggs, ground almonds, flour, vanilla extract and milk and mix together until combined
Spoon the cake mix into the tin making sure you get to the edges and smooth the top
Cut each fig into four slices and arrange them on top of the cake
Sprinkle with flaked almonds before baking in the oven for 45 minutes or until a cocktail stick comes out clean
Leave to cool in the tin for 20 minutes or so before turning out and allowing to cool completely on a wire rack
