Fig bread

Fig bread is a traditional Christmas item, typical in the Malaga and Murcia regions. It is a recipe of country origin, that used to be a way of preserving the large amounts of fruit that came from the fig trees. So as not to waste the figs, they were dried and spices, sugar and nuts were added to them. The result is this delicious cake, which is usually eaten at this time of year.
We’ve made it with Frutos del Sol blanched almonds and walnuts and added our own personal touch by replacing the milk with Amandín Tigernut Horchata. We’re sure you won’t be disappointed, and you’ll delight your whole family at the next get-together. Want to give it a try?
