Winter is the perfect season to enjoy so many fresh local produce and one of my favorites is figs – I love them in my salad, smoothies, savory dishes but I absolutely adore them in cakes.

And, my favorite flavor combination with figs is honey…they are absolutely made for each other.

I recently came across ‘Don Victor® Honey at Walmart in the Hispanic Aisle and it has such a sweet-aromatic flavor.

Also, Don Victor® Honey is raw, filtered honey, not heated or processed in any other way hence I bought a couple of jars to use and to give as holiday gifts too.

By the time we got home, I had already decided to make the Honeycomb Fig Cake with Pistachio Cream with it.

The honey that I bought also has a honeycomb which I absolutely love to eat either on it’s own or cheese or on a warm dinner roll with freshly cut figs along with my morning coffee – it makes for a quick but yum breakfast.honeyThe recipe for the cake is extremely simple and you need some fresh figs, pistachio, pecans, eggs, flour and off-course Don Victor® honey.

I’m using the honeycomb in the cake batter and also topping it on the cake along with some chopped pistachio for that fresh taste. (Here are some pictures of the cake process)fig-cake-process

I served the cake for a holiday evening tea at my place and it was already gone before I could get to it. Everybody absolutely loved the simple yet delicious flavors.

So, to make them even more happy (remember it’s the season to be happy), I also gifted them with a jar of Don Victor® honey‘.
