Very rich, moist without any icing. You could easily drizzle over it, but it tastes great without it! I used the left over fig preserves for peanut butter sandwiches... And this Recipe is from 1980

How to Make Fig Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat together well. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  2. This cake is delicious without icing but I did make a simple glaze of powered sugar and milk and it was even better.
  3. For the fig preserves, My grandma Jennings made her's from scratch. Fresh figs smashed up with equal amounts of sugar cooked in a sauce pan until tender. She made them and canned them for her recipes. Such a sweet lady that loved to make sweet desserts.
