- 2 cups of flour
- 1 tablespoon of corn flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 100g of dried figs (chopped)
- 200g of almonds (soaked in water)

- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Prepare a 30cm square baking pan with greaseproof paper or grease it well with oil.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Now blend the soaked almonds until they are smooth and creamy.
In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and vegetable oil into a paste, then add the vanilla, soy milk and vinegar.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ones and then add the almonds and figs, and stir the mixture well. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes and test with a clean knife.
Heat in a small saucepan one cup of orange juice, 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour this over the hot almond cake and serve.
