Author Notes: My new roommates and I had an abundance of small golden apples in our CSA this week, so I said "Hey, I'll make some apple bread." Then I was shopping in an indian imports store and came across some beautiful dried figs and my recipe idea was born. I used chopped pecans because I'm in Georgia and they're cheaper, but I'm sure shaved almonds, or any other nut you are partial to would be delicious as well. We've been gobbling this bread up for breakfast!kerrylow


Makes 3 short, or 2 tall loaves

  • 2.5 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1.5 cups AP flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • .5 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temp
  • .5 lemon, juice and zest
  • 2 apples, chopped
  • 6 dried figs, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease bread pans, or muffin pans (this makes 2 tall or 3 small loaves, probably at least 24 muffins). Combine dry ingredients, combine wet ingredients. and then combine the two! If you need more moisture, add some more milk. If you want fluffier bread, make it more moist, if you want denser bread then the batter should be thick. Pour into pans, sprinkle the top with raw sugar (or granulated sugar), bake approx 50 minutes.
