Delicious! I added chopped walnuts to the batter and it turned out great! I posted a couple of pictures since the recipe didn't have any. I think the cake can look a lot better than what mine did, but the taste is great! Thank you for posting it

Excellent recipe. The cake turned out beautiful and tasted great. I used Splenda as I am on a very restricted sugar diet. Both my wife and I thought it couldn't be better and couldn't tell sugar had been eliminated. Thanks

I just made this wonderful cake from figs in my back yard. It is absolutely beautiful to look at, with the pinkish figs, and the shiny syrup-- a work of art, really. AND it tastes so rich and wonderful. I give this an A+

I have a very productive brown turkey fig tree and have made a couple of batches of fig infused vodka, which were delicious. But, I had quite a few vodka soaked figs left over and didn't want to waste them. So, I followed this recipe exactly, but also chopped and folded the slightly drunken figs into the batter. The cake was fantastic and the added figs made it very moist and gave it an extra flavor punch. I served it to a guest last night and had to freeze what was left so I wouldn't eat the rest of it today myself!

Great way to use up this year's bumper crop of figs. I modified the recipe to make a true skillet cake (as all good upsidedown cakes should be made!). It unmolded perfectly and looked beautiful.

Great cake. Delicious served with fresh clotted cream. Cake has a lovely texture. You could use almost any fruit with this cake recipe. Will make often.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. I was looking for something to make with figs and this was fantastic. I ended up using brown turkey figs.

I've just taken it out of the cake pan and not only does it look great, it tastes terrific as well. Thanks for the recipe.
