Reduce heat to maintain a gentle bubble, cover and cook, switching to a wooden spoon and stirring vigorously every few minutes, for 10 minutes.

  • Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, stirring a few times, for 10 minutes. Stir in chopped figs and lemon zest.Coat a 10-inch springform pan with cooking spray and place it on a wire rack.
  • Transfer the polenta mixture to the prepared pan, spreading it evenly across the bottom with a damp wooden spoon.
