  3. In your mixer, mix the sugar and grapeseed oil well.
  4. To this, add the eggs and whip for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Now add the dry ingredients and blend well.
  6. Finally add to the mixture, the figs and carrots and give your mixture a final 30 second - 1 minute stir.
  7. Now pour your mixture into your prepare loaf pan
  8. (Optional- if you like a sugared crust, generously sprinkle sugar on top before popping the same into the oven)
  9. Place your loaf pan into the oven and check back in 45 minutes to see if it's done (Do the toothpick or clean fork test)
  10. Take out of the oven when done and slice when the loaf cools a bit.
  11. Enjoy!
