Homegrown Figs are just wonderful

I love figs and fig trees; I now have four fig trees planted in my orchard. That might be a bit obsessive, but this is a farm and I can share. When figs get ripe, they come in great profusion, so I needed some recipes to use all these great fruits of the gods. I make Fig Preserves or Jam and Fig Bread.

Fig Bread Recipe with a Nip of Grand Marnier

Fig Bread Recipe with a Nip of Grand Marnier

Ingredients

  • • ½ pound ripe figs*, stemmed and chopped or mashed (1/2 cup mashed figs)
  • • 1 Tablespoon Grand Marnier or knock-off orange liqueur like Grand Gala or Harlequin
  • • 1 egg
  • • ¾ cup sugar
  • • ¼ cup corn oil
  • • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • • ½ teaspoon salt
  • • ½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts (reserve ¼ cup to sprinkle on top of the loaves)
  • • Cream cheese for spreading on warm fig bread

Instructions

  • Spray 3 or 4 mini-loaf pans with baking spray with flour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Wash the figs and remove stems. Chop or mash figs and stir in the Grand Marnier; let stand 15 minutes.

  • Whisk egg in a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and oil.

  • In another large mixing bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

  • Measure ½ cup of the fig-Grand Marnier mixture and stir this into the egg mixture. Mix wet and dry ingredients until combined.

  • Stir in chopped nuts, reserving a few to sprinkle on the loaves.

  • Pour batter into 2 small well-greased loaf pans. Fill only ½ full. Do not overfill.

  • Sprinkle reserved nuts on top and bake at 350º F for 35-45 minutes or until a straw inserted into the center comes out clean. This is a moist bread and tends to cook slowly in the middle. If straw is still sticky and the tops of the loaves are brown, lay a piece of aluminum foil on top of the loaves, shiny side down, for the last few minutes of baking. This bread will look done before it is done.

  • Cool in pan 5 min, then invert onto a drying rack. Bread can be frozen for a month.

  • Yield: 3-4 mini loaves

  • *This recipe is great with frozen figs. I just froze ripe figs in zip lock bags. They keep months.
