 Caramel Cinnamon And Fig Loaf

In need of a quick bread. Please, no banana! What do I have? What do I have? Lots of figs, dried ones at that. Hmmmmmm. Browse books, browse more books. Scan "fig" in the glossary. Caramel Fig Loaf. Bingo! Hmmm, make it healthier .. how? Think, think, tweak tweak. Okay, I know what I'll do. Do I have raw sugar? Check. Gotcha! Mix, mix! Hmm batter too dry. Sour cream should do it. Jot notes, make adjustments. Place loaf in the oven to bake and sit down to do this post. Check time. 20 minutes! Not bad!

    Tried it with date syrup since golden syrup isn't too easy to find in Germany. Chucked in some pecans and nutmeg as well and I think it's one of the most delicious things I've ever baked

    Hi, love the look of this recipe. I'll try and make it next week, still have a banana loaf to get through first! I was wondering, where you've written 1/4 lite sour cream do you mean 1/4 cup?
