Emily from Hope Nutrition not only runs her own small nutrition business, is mum extraordinaire to little Isabella and Louie, but also has a side hustle of running her family fig orchard, Old Road Estate. Emily has always been one of our biggest supporters and a lover of Tanna Farms coconut oil. So when we receive amazing recipes from her that combine great produce from her orchard and our coconut oil, we get a tad excited to be able to share it with you, our Tanna Farms fans.
This recipe is the perfect combination of fresh figs, honey, almond meal and coconut oil, making it a delicious dairy and gluten-free treat. Emily suggests other fruits that can be used to make this a year-round delight!

We’d love to see your creations so tag us in pics when you make it.


Fig, Almond and Honey cake – serves 8-10
Gluten and Dairy-Free

  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 3 free-range eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted (ummm, yes Tanna Farms of course)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tbspn lemon zest
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ~4-5 fresh figs, each figs sliced into rounds (or any other seasonal fruit such as plums, peaches, apricots, strawberries etc). This makes it a suitable year-round recipe. I even think feijoas would work and very thinly sliced apples or pears. Even preserved apples or pears.

The How To:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C and line a cake tin with baking paper.
2. Place all of the ingredients, except figs, into a food processor and process until well combined and smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and place sliced fig rounds evenly over the cake
3. Bake for around 40 minutes or until golden and cooked through (when a skewer comes out clean).
4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before removing from the tin and placing onto a plate.
5. Serve with freshly whipped cream, thick Greek yoghurt or for dairy-free a dollop of coconut cream or coconut yoghurt.
6. Enjoy!
