Rumor has it that my mom craved Fig Newtons when she was pregnant with me and to this day, it is one of my favorite cookies EVER. But I can honestly say I’d never in my life purchased figs before, dried or fresh. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’d even tasted a fig except for those newtons (at least not that I remember). Something about those wrinkled, odd looking fruits intimidates me. So when I came across this Fig, Applesauce, and Almond Breakfast Loaf, I thought I’d give them a try. And I can now say I’m intimidated no more! The figs in this bread are sweet and chewy and the almond extract give this bread such a comforting aroma that I just want to curl up on the couch with a warm buttered slice or two, a nice cup of coffee and a good book. Yum!
