2. Fabulous Fig Bread

Base: Breads

Number of Servings: 22

1 Cup(s) Dried Figs, ground
1 Cup(s) Boiling water
3/4 Cup(s) Pistachios
1 1/2 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon(s) Baking soda
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
4 Tablespoon(s) Margarine or butter
1 Cup(s) Sugar
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla

In a medium-sized heat-proof bowl, combine the figs and pistachios, add boiling water and let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 F. Grease an 8-1/2" by 4-1/2" loaf pan. In medium sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat the butter until fluffy. Gradually beat in the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat for 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightened. Add the dry ingredients and beat until just blended. With a spoon, blend in the fig mixture. Turn into the prepared pan and bake 1 to 1 1/4 hours, or until the bread just begins to pull away from the sides of the pan, and the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool in pan on a rack for 15 minutes, and then turn out and cool completely. Wrap in plastic and store overnight before serving. Cut into thin slices.
