Fig bran loaf

Makes 1 x 2 lb loaf


100g Self raising flour

300ml milk

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.
