Preheat the oven to 160 C / Gas mark 3. Grease and flour a 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking tin.
In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick and pale. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, cloves, cinnamon and allspice; blend into the egg mixture along with the vanilla. Finally fold in the chopped figs and walnuts. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and spread evenly.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly toasted. When cool, cut into squares and roll in icing sugar.
