    I saw Ms. Lucy make a Fig Cake on LPB this morning, but I wasn't quick enough to get the recipe, so I was delighted to find this! My Mother-in-law brought me some homemade fig preserves, which are great as-is or on a hot biscuit for breakfast, but HONEY, I'll be trying this TODAY!

    Oh wow, this looks so good! We've got a fig tree in the backyard, and I've searched and searched for recipes using fresh, not dried, figs! I can't wait to try this! Thank you and you've got my 5!

    I made a similar cake years ago, and it was delicious. I lost the recipe, so I am thrilled to see this one! Sounds scrumptious! :)
