Fig, Applesauce, and Almond Breakfast Loaf

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!
