 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk (or 1 tablespoon) Active
  • -Dried Yeast
  • 1/4 c Warm Water (110 to 115
  • -degrees)
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 2 tb Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 c Milk, at room temperature
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 ts Orange Rind, grated
  • 1 c Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 c Unbleached White Flour
  • 1 1/2 c Dried Figs, snipped
  • 1 c Water
  • 1/2 ts Ground Allspice
  • Confectioners' Sugar
  • -(optional)


Soften the yeast in the warm water. Combine the sugar, salt, oil, milk,
egg and orange rind in a large bowl. Beat well. Add the yeast mixture and
the 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Beat. Add the remaining flour. Extra flour
may be needed if the dough is sticky.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5
minutes. Transfer to an oiled bowl, cover with a damp towel and let rise
for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, prepare the fig filling by combining the figs, water and
allspice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until
the mixture is thick. Mash the figs with a potato masher or large spoon
during cooking. Cool.

Punch down the dough. Roll into a 1/2-inch thick rectangle 8 inches wide.
Spread with the fig filling. Roll up like a jelly roll. Fit into a lightly
oiled 8-inch-square pan. Seal the edges together. At each corner cut with a
scissors to fit into the shape of the pan. Make two slashes on top of each
side. Let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake in a 350-degree oven
for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool.

May be sprinkled lightly with confectioners' sugar just before serving.
