    1       c            California dried figs
    2       c            Sifted white flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
    1 1/2   ts           Salt
      3/4   c            Granulated sugar
    2       c            Whole wheat flour
    4       tb           Butter or margarine
    1 1/2   c            Sour milk
    1       t            Soda

      3/4   c            Coarsely chopped walnuts
 
   Cover figs with boiling water, let stand 10 minutes, drain and dry on
   towel.  Clip stems and cut figs into thin strips.  Sift white flour with
   baking powder, salt and sugar.  Add whole wheat flour and stir to blend.
   Work butter into flour mixture.  Add sour milk in which soda has been
   dissolved and mix.  Add beaten eggs, nuts and figs, and beat.  Pour into a
   paper-lined loaf pan (about 10 x 5 x 3 inches).  Bake in moderate oven
   (350 F.) about 1 hour and 25 minutes.  Serve hot with butter, or cool and
   slice very thin for tea sandwiches.  Makes excellent toast when one or two
   days old.
