This pecan and fig cake is spiced with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and has a very creamy icing. It smells great while baking!
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. - 30 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 02 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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! - 23 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
