– Easy to Make Homemade Fig Bread –

Fig bread is something we have been consuming in my family for decades, it’s perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning or with tea in the afternoon. Now, traditional recipes for this bread are always made with dried figs, but since fig season was upon me, I decided to make this bread with fresh figs instead of dried. This recipe is beyond easy to make, even for those of you that are not familiar with bread making, this is something you can make. No special skills or special equipment are needed to make this tasty homemade fig bread. However, I do recommend that you use high quality ingredients to make this bread, as it makes all the difference in the flavor. This bread will last for about 7 days after you make it.
