This spiced fig bread received many 5-star reviews with a few suggestions. One person said she would cut the sugar to 2 cups and would cut some of the figs in half rather than mash all of them. Another person added 1/4 cup of Jack Daniel's Whiskey for extra flavor.
- 3 eggs
- 2 1/2 cups sugar (may reduce to 2 cups)
- 2 cups ripe figs (mashed)
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup buttermilk (well shaken)
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Gather the ingredients.
Heat the oven to 350 F / 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour two 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pans (or three small loaf pans).
In a mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat the eggs. Add the sugar and beat well.
With the mixer on low speed, add mashed figs and vegetable oil.
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Add the flour mixture to the first mixture alternating with the buttermilk. Beat until well blended.
Fold in chopped pecans.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The center may sink slightly while cooling.
