Step 1

In small saucepan, bring honey just to boil; remove from heat. Stir in tea and grated lemon rind; set pan aside and let cool slightly.

In bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, allspice and salt; stir in figs. Set bowl aside.

Step 3

In large bowl, beat eggs until pale and frothy, about 5 minutes. Beat in oil and vanilla. Beat in sugar, 2 tbsp at a time, until slightly thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes. Alternately fold in flour and honey mixtures, making 3 additions of flour and 2 of honey, to make thin batter.
