Fig Cake

This is my friend Lavette's recipe. One year on our way home from visiting, she sent us home with this cake....my son and I ate it over the next 24 hours that it took for us to drive and we fought over who got the last piece!

The recipe calls for 5 eggs, and it is needed because of the weight of the figs.
