Fig bran loaf
Makes 1 x 2 lb loaf
100g Self raising flour
275g chopped dried figs
150g caster sugar
100g bran flakes
Soak the wheat bran, caster sugar, milk and chopped figs for 30 minutes until a soft paste is reached.
Fold in the sieved flour and spoon the mix into a greased 2 lb bread tin and place in the center of a preheated oven at (180C/ Fan 160C/ 350F/ Gas 4) and bake for 1 hour.
Allow to cool before serving.
This is a heavy dense loaf so it keeps well wrapped in clingfilm or you can even freeze it!
Top Tip: Chop the dried figs as small as you can and this will ensure even distribution during baking.
