I’ve said this before, but better pans can really take your baked goods up a level. Bundt pans from Nordic like this one are not only great for baking, but the cakes looks so beautiful when they come out. I know, you’re probably saying you only make this cake on special occasions, but why not have a more beautiful looking cake, too!


Preheat oven to 180. ºC. Grease a round Cake pan with margarine and line bottom with parchment paper, smearing it well and set aside.
Place in bowl honey, milk, margarine and oil. Place in the microwave and melt margarine. Mix well.
Add the eggs and sugar and beat for a few minutes with the help of an electric mixer or food processor.
Lastly add cinnamon, flour, baking powder, chopped nuts and dried figs broken into small pieces.
Beat together gently and do not over-mix
Place the dough in the greased cake pan and bake 40 minutes or until the cake is cooked and toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
Then just unmold, making sure to remove parchment paper …slice and enjoy!!
