Fresh Fig Cake


Every year around summer, this recipe always pops out. Finally made the words into the cake, and it actually turned out moist and delicious. Just finished the final piece earlier this morning for breakfast, with freshly brewed coffee. Very good. Do you like figs and what's your favorite way to enjoy it? Please share your great ideas with us :-)

I'm going to try this tonight with the fresh figs I harvested today.

Hopefully, yours comes out as moist and delicious as mine. Happy Baking :)


I just baked this cake today and it is one of the simplest and most delicious recipes for a cake. The measurements are accurate and the cake is well risen, moist and not overly sweet!

So happy to hear that the cake came out delicious, and you enjoyed it. Not overly sweet is definitely a plus for me as well. Happy baking :)

I made this (subbed whole wheat pastry flour for 1/2 the flour and added a splash of vanilla). My new "foodie" neighbor was very impressed!

I am not a baker. I made this with self-rising cake flour (left out the baking powder), ripe figs, and it turned out great.
