Figs are one of those versatile fruits that I love to use in baking and cooking. I’ve made fig jam and a fig upside down cake and now this delicious fig bread. If you’ve never made a quick bread, they are really simple to pull together and are perfect for breakfast or dessert. The figs in this recipe along with the pecans give this a fruit cake kinda feel, but without the dried fruit. I hope you try this bread while figs are in season. Happy Baking!
1 cup mashed figs
1 3/4 cup self-rising flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour your loaf pan and set to the side.
In a large bowl, add the flour and both the white and brown sugars. In another bowl add the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla and whisk together. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix together. Add the figs into the batter until combined then fold in the pecans. Pour the batter into your loaf pan leaving about 1-1/2 inch space at the top ( leaving room for the bread to rise)
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes.
Cool completely and enjoy!
