•1/2 cup of plain yogurt
•1/2 cup of sunflower oil
•1 tbsp of ground cinnamon

•1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
•1 cup of brown sugar
•1 tsp of baking powder
•1/2 cup of raisins (chopped )



Soak figs in a medium bowl with warm water for 30 minutes. Drain and cut them into cubes.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Sift flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl.

Whisk eggs, granulated sugar in another large mixing bowl until it gets creamy. Gradually add yogurt, sunflower oil whisking consistently.

Add sifted flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda to the bowl and whisk thoroughly. Add figs, walnut, raisins and apple to the bowl and stir.
