Liz picked up a case of perfectly ripe Turkish figs Saturday, so we needed to find a recipe that would use up a big chunk of them in a hurry -- Cake is always the correct answer.
The recipe is adapted from Dorie Greenwood, subbing "Just Like Honey" (rice syrup or agave would also work), soy margarine, and 3 tbs. flax seed (freshly ground, mixed with 6 tbs. water) to replace the three eggs. The timing wasn't affected, coming in at 55 minutes.
