Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In 8x8 inch cake pan, combine butter, canola oil, and brown sugar over low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Place fig halves cut side up to cover the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle cinnamon over the figs.
Combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder; then add milk and stir until smooth. Pour over figs and bake at 400 degrees until golden brown and it begins to pull away from the the side of the pan, and a toothpick comes out clean.
You may serve this straight from the pan, or let it set about 5 minutes and turn it out on a plate for a wonderful Upside Down cake.
If you want to enhance it further, serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Remove to a serving platter; cover loosely. Add water to roasting pan; stir to loosen browned pieces from pan. Strain and set aside.
In a small saucepan, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in cornstarch until blended; gradually add the juice and beef broth, drippings, figs, pepper and remaining salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, uncovered, until figs are tender and sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes.
Sprinkle walnuts over lamb; serve with fig sauce.
