Fig Date Walnut Bread #BreadBakers

This is a beautiful bread,  the figs and dates  makes it chewy and the walnuts give a  nutty taste and flavor.  This is a dense bread yet soft and fruity bread.  I loved the taste of figs in this bread.  This is quick bread.  

Makes one Loaf
1 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Teaspoon Finely grated Lemon rind
1/4 Teaspoon Ground nutmeg
A pinch of Cloves powder
110 Grams Chopped Dried Figs
75 Grams Chopped Pitted Dates
1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Oil
2 Eggs
3/4 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour
1.1/2 Teaspoon Baking soda
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Chopped Walnuts
A few halved Walnuts

In a saucepan add the buttermilk, figs and dates and keep it to soak for at least 30 minutes 
 or until fruit softens.
In the meantime sieve the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.  Mix in the chopped walnuts well, keep aside.
In another bowl whisk sugar, oil, and eggs until well blended. Add the lemon rind, nutmeg, cloves powder,  then stir in butter milk figs and date mix, give it a quick whisk. Then add the  flour, folding it with a spatula until combined . 

Spoon batter into a greased and lined loaf pan. Sprinkle few  halved walnuts  evenly over batter. Bake it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean . 
 Cool for 15 minutes in a pan.

After 15 minutes lift the paper and place the bread  on a wire rack to cool completely . 
Slice it ..
Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.
Perfect ...
