 I was pleasantly surprised how good it came out!  My  grandmother's recipe..

2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup shortening
4 eggs
2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoons allspice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped pecans
Mix sugar, figs, shortening eggs. Beat well then add the flour, cinnamon, spices, baking soda and pecans. Pour in a greased cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
