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

  • 1Beat together well. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
  • 2This cake is delicious without icing but I did make a simple glaze of powered sugar and milk and it was even better.
  • 3For 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.
