Nice tall loaf with a tender inside crumb, and a wonderful sweet flavor from the figs and honey. The bread has a little crunch from the fig seeds and walnuts! Will be great toasted for breakfast with cream cheese. I increased the walnuts to 1/2 cup ~ Mixed on the dough cycle and baked in my oven, in Pyrex, at 350F for 30 minutes.
