Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, cayenne, black pepper, rosemary and figs together in a large bowl. Stir in the cheddar, breaking up clumps, until it is coated with flour mixture. In medium bowl, whisk the milk, sour cream, melted butter, and egg, together until smooth. Gently fold the milk mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined (do not over mix). The batter will be heavy and thick.
