This recipe would be good with grinded up KUMQUATS. Would also be good with a caramel glaze.

How to Make FIG PRESERVE CAKE

Step-by-Step

Sift flour,cinnamon,allspice,cloves,nutmeg,bakingsoda and salt. Add to buttermilk mixture. Add nuts. Cook in a greased floured tube pan in a 350% oven for 1 hr. and 10 minutes. Test when done with toothpick.
  2. I cook my figs in a pot ( For every two cups of fresh figs, Put 3/4 cup of sugar ) and a little bit of water until they change color. Put them in a sterilized jar and processed for 10 min. In a stock pot of hot water. Pull them out, and let them cool. And then they are sealed. Then you may open a jar the next day and use it. ( scoop some figs out, cut them up, put them in a chopper,grined them up with the fresh figs juice. ) Then make the cake !
  3. Caramel Glaze--- 4 Tablespoons-Butter, 1/4 cup-light brown sugar, 1/4 cup-granulated sugar, 1/2 cup-heavy whipping cream.

Cook the mixture stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Spoon the glaze over a completely cooled cake.
