 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Dried Figs, ground
  • 1 c -Boiling water
  • 3/4 c Pistachios
  • 1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 4 tb Margarine or butter
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 3 tb Egg substitute; -OR-
  • 1 -Egg
  • 1 ts 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.
