How to Make It
Preheat oven to 325°F. Beat butter in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment on medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add honey; beat well. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir together baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and 3 cups of the flour in a bowl; add to butter mixture alternately with water, beginning and ending with flour mixture, beating well on low speed after each addition.
Toss together raisins, figs, almonds, and remaining 1/2 cup flour in a small bowl until well coated; gently stir into batter.
Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured 9- x 5- x 3-inch loaf pans. Bake in preheated oven until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 55 minutes to 1 hour, 5 minutes. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely, about 2 hours.
