    This is awesome. I got over-supply of homemade fig preserves and had been looking for some good use. The cake was moist and great. It was so popular that it has been one of my plates to bring to pot luck. I put 1 1/2 cups of fig and cut down a bit on sugar. I skipped the glaze part since the the fig preserves I got were too sweet. Thanks

    HIGH 5 and this recipe deserves more than that. I haven't enjoyed a cake similar to this in years and you have brought back some great memories.

    When I was a child we lived in an Italian neighborhood. In every backyard there was a fig tree...delicious figs in season and in winter the ends of the branches all had thier little white protective hats on. Good thing I was small or Mamma would not have had any figs left to make her delicious recipes. She was amazing! Thanks Mumtaz for your rating on the Moist Fig Cake!Blessings, Joymarie
