Beat the eggs with the honey for 5 minutes, until they double in volume and are frothy. Add the oil whilst stirring constantly and then pour in the milk. Add the sifted flour and baking powder a little at a time. Line a 20-22cm diameter baking tray with baking parchment. Pour the mixture into the tray and bake at 180 °C for 45 minutes. When cooked, let it cool completely. Cut the cake in half laterally. Spread the jam on the bottom half pressing it in with a spatula to make it absorb a little. Then spread it again. Cover with the top half of the cake and then remove a part of the top with a knife. Fill the hole created with the pulp of 2 or 3 figs. Halve the two remaining figs and use them to decorate.
