Recipe ~ Figgy Cake

Figgy (or Date) Cake

1 C Oil
1 1/2 C Sugar
3 Eggs
1 tsp. soda, dissolve in a little hot water
2 C Flour
1 tsp. Nutmeg
1 tsp. Allspice
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 C Buttermilk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 C dried figs, chopped (or Dates)
1 C Chopped Nut

Beat 3 eggs; add sugar and oil. After sifting dry ingredients, add to egg mixture alternatively with buttermilk. Add vanilla and fold in figs (or dates) and nuts. Pour into a greased bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, 20 minutes, or until done. (may take a little longer - I always start checking my bundt cakes every 5 minutes after the first hour as you don't want it over baked.)


1/2 C Granulated Sugar
1/2 Stick Butter
2 TBSP Corn Syrup
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 C Buttermilk
1/4 tsp. Soda

Mix ingredients and boil for 3 minutes. When cake is done, remove from oven and pour hot sauce over it.


  1. I'll bet this could pass for "Figgy Pudding" if carolers came to call!

  2. That sounds so very good! Can I have some, I know I would love it. Beautiful picture.
