Diane Jellison's Famous Fig Cake

We stop in Jacksonville on our way South every year for a visit and to depart with Diane's famous fig cake in hand. This cake has made its way up and down both coasts, leaving all of our friends craving this recipe. It can't be beat!

Ingredients
1 cup Crisco oil
2 cups sugar (adjust to 2/3 if you prefer less)
3 eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup buttermilk
1 cup Brasuiell's (North Carolina) pure fig preserves
1 cup chopped pecans

Combine oil and sugar in a large mixing bowl; beat until blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk, blending well. Fold in fig preserves and nuts. Pour into greased and floured tube or bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until it tests done.
