Dried figs


Caster sugar

Plain flour

Baking powder

Ground cinnamon

Finely chopped walnuts

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF/Gas 4. Then line a 30 x 20 x 3 cm baking tin with greaseproof paper and grease the paper.
  • With a sharp knife, chop the figs roughly. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until well blended.
  • In another bowl, sift together the dry ingredients, then fold into the egg mixture in several batches.
  • Scrape the mixture into the baking tin and bake until the top is firm and brown, about 35-40 minutes. It should still be soft underneath.
  • Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then unmould and transfer to a sheet of greaseproof paper lightly sprinkled with icing sugar.
  • Cut into bars.
