1 1/2 cups
chopped fresh figs
This cake is WONDERFUL! Very moist and flavorful. I used a cream cheese frosting instead of the frosting in the recipe. I know I will be making this every year my fig tree produces!
I made this cake for the first time tonight and am very disappointed. The cake itself is mainly a spice cake which is fine but you cannot taste any figs (I even put 1 extra cup of figs). I tried to make the icing 2 times with no success. So if your main reason for making a fig cake is to taste the figs, forget this recipe.
This cake was great. I did not use the frosting because I used one from another recipe. It was 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup water,
2 cups chopped fresh figs,1tablespoon lemon juice. Bring to boil then simmer for 20 min. It came out great. Also, I only had walnuts so I used those. I will make this again!
This is delicious!! It is very moist and full of flavor. I think when the figs are gone I'll try this with another fruit, maybe apples. I was a bit concerned when I made the frosting, but, once on the cake and after setting awhile it was great.. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Liz!!
I have a similar receipe...that is wonderful....What I like to do with this iciing is after you've taken the cake out of the oven..let it sit for 15 min....get a fork and jab the top of the cake, all over...I jab all thru the cake the deeper the better...cause when you pour this delicious icing over it...it oozes down thru the holes you jabbed and it really makes the cake jucier....
This cake was delish...very moist and the topping was wonderful...I have never cooked with fresh figs til this recipe... and this is for sure a keeper...Many enjoyed this recipe.....MANY Thanks to Liz
Not particularly a fig fan myself, I thought this was great and my family loved it even more! It's akin to a spice cake but is so heavy and moist that it's even better. We prefer cream cheese frosting but it's good either way. Great recipe.
Very good....very moist. I added about 2 1/2 cups of figs, and probably could have added a bit more flour, it is moist and very good. I think its a little sweet, though my figs were very sweet too....taking that in mind, I'd cut the sugar a bit next time...frosting was delish. Alot like caramel....very yummy overall!
