FIG AND ORANGE LOAF

GF : DF : SF

Serves 8-10

A little while back I was so in love with making ‘loaves’ I was almost convinced I would open a hole in the wall bakery style thing called “LOAF SHACK”. It didn’t happen, evidently, but maybe some day it still will? Anyway, dreams of loaf shacks opening aside, I created this recipe because I wanted a lovely winter seasonal loaf in the repertoire and this nails it. Whilst figs are available (dried that is) year round, oranges are a winter thing and best to make the most of them whilst they are fresh. As I write fresh, I realised I’ve dehydrated them and put them on top, but there are fresh oranges in the actual loaf so all good!

Ingredients:

125 ml coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup maple syrup

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder

1 1/2 cups (250g) dried figs, sliced

1 tablespoons (approx 1 orange) orange zest

1 cup (65g) shredded coconut

1 cup (145g) teff flour

2 (230g) zucchini, grated

1/2 cup (50g) walnuts, crushed

Method:

Preheat oven to 180C and line a 14x20cm loaf tin (or thereabouts) with greaseproof paper. In a large mixing bowl mix coconut oil, maple, eggs, vanilla, spices, bicarb and baking powder. Add figs, orange zest, shredded coconut, teff, zucchini, walnuts and mix again. Pour into lined loaf tin and cook 45-55 minutes in the mid to top of oven or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool 20 minutes in the tin before transferring to a rack to cool completely. Cut and serve with a cuppa.
