1 1/2 cups
Moist and fluffy! Works well with fresh figs= 1lb. Added lemon zest for extra aroma. Nonfat yogurt can be substituted for butter milk.
I really liked this cake. I made it once with just white sugar. Then I made it a second time and used half white and half brown. Excellent both ways! The buttermilk really makes the difference too. I used pecans instead of walnuts too. Just as good.
delicious! I made a few modifications... mainly due to what I had on hand. I used yogurt instead of buttermilk and hazelnuts instead of walnuts. next time I will use a little more spices, not quite spiced enough for my taste, but still quite lovely. I also baked the batter in a mini-muffin pan (15 minutes) which makes them easy, handy snacks.
I usually don't bother writing reviews, but this recipe is amazing. I substituted the buttermilk with my homemade yogurt and it turned out great. It is now my absolutely favorite recipe.
very good recipe. although i love figs, i don't care for big chucks of them in the cake so i pureed them. cake turned out even better.
So good!!! I made it for four people and we ate most of it within an hour. I substituted pecans for walnuts and per the advice of another reviewer, put the figs into the food processor instead of chopping them. I will be making this over and over!
I made this with fresh figs from my tree. 1lb 1 oz. and dident add any extra water. I dident have any buttermilk so sub'ed regular milk with a little bit of vinager. This cake was so incredibly moist it was barly a cake anymore. That being said everyone LOVED it. I brought half pan to my trainer and he ate the whole thing without sharing.
Its not real pretty to look at. I supose you could add some purple food coloring. I am thinking about making some marscapone or goat cheese whip cream and reduced lemon drizzle to fancy it up a bit. I will repost when I have tried it. Heaven knows I have enough figs!
This is an excellent base recipe for some great fruit cakes. I actually made a recipe of bananas foster and coarse mashed half of the cooked bananas into the spice cake batter. the remaining sauce and bananas were used to glaze and top the cake. the results were outstanding!! definitely a keeper!!
