How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Lightly grease an 8 x 4 inch loaf dish.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the dates, figs, butter and baking soda.
  • Pour in the boiling water, stir well and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Beat the sugar, walnuts and eggs into the date mixture.
  • Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Stir into date mixture until just blended.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
