This is a moist quick bread bursting with the flavour of sweet figs and crunchy walnuts with a slight hint of cinnamon.   The chopped dried figs need to be softened by adding boiling water, a bit of salt, baking soda, stir and leave to cool to room temperature.  The whole lot together with the liquid is then added into the batter.  I used Rapadura sugar which is an unrefined sugar from the Uva province in Sri Lanka.  You can read more about Rapadura sugar from ‘here’.
