The beautiful girls at Mondays Wholefoods have just started publishing seasonal wholefood journals that have recipes, natural remedies and editorals from a handful of incredible bloggers, food writers, photographers and more.The article featured in this journal was my fig and pecan loaf. A delicious moist loaf , sweetened with dark unrefined muscuvado sugar and rustic with earthy tones , a cake that defines myself as a baker.
50g butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup dark muscovado sugar
2 free range eggs, lightly beaten
5 figs roughly chopped
1/4 cup pecans
1/2 cup spelt, regular flour or ground almonds
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 180°C
In the processor add the above ingredients leaving out the pecans and figs as they go in last then process until combined. Finally add you pecans and figs and pulse once.
