"This is a very moist cake that doesn't last long in my house. For a different taste, toast the pecans slightly. Dates can be substituted for figs to make a date cake."

1 1/2 cups
canned figs with juice, chopped
light corn syrup
Very good, moist cake - I made a few adjustments. Used 3/4 c. brown sugar and 3/4 c. Splenda in place of white sugar. Used 3/4 c. applesauce and 1/4 c. oil in place of 1 c. oil. Took a little longer to bake - almost 1-1/2 hours. Delicious - will surely make again.
Yummy yummy and did I say Yummy??? This is exaclty what my mother made, such a delicious moist cake, not at all like the easy "cake box mixes" that we love and are guilty of serving our family! My hubby loved this, thanks for sharing!
delicious and my guests were pleasantly surprised,
This cake is absolutely wonderful! I had a lot of figs and decided to experiment - had never made nor eaten a fig cake. I chopped up some fresh, ripe figs instead of using canned figs and made it in a bundt pan. It is so moist that it would be just as good without the icing. I'll definitely make it again.
This is a review of the cake only (not the icing). I typically don't like things overly sweet, so the only change I made was to skip making the buttermilk icing. It was sweet enough without. It's a delicious, spicy, moist cake. I used home canned figs and it turned out wonderful. I used a bundt cake pan and had some trouble getting it out of the pan. Make sure you grease and flour the pan very thoroughly.
Delicious cake! Super moist. My mother in law makes homemade fig jam. so i used that for the fig base. I made it for my Dad's birthday. Everyone. Loved it. Do yourself and your family a favor and make this at least once!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Yummy! If I had one suggestion, make it and let it soak up all the icing over night. Then enjoy the next day.
THIS WAS AWESOME!! My family (the ones into figs anyway XD) LOVED IT! I only made the cake so this is about the cake only.
We do't have allspice here in Egypt so I put in a mix of my own: Ground Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves and Ginger about a teaspoon each and I used baking powder instead of baking soda, I used half a cup oil n half melted butter instead all oil. The cake came out moist n sooo tasty one thing I'd change is add more sugar next time, but if u're making the Icing then u're all set!
I made this last night and was very pleasantly surprised. (the cake part only, as I didn't have the ingredients for the icing) This was a hit even with the kids, who aren't fans of spice cake. I used fresh figs. Excellent recipe!
