A sweet and savoury bread at the same time!
Perfect to accompany hors d'oeuvres with cold meats
and cheeses, this bread is also great to enjoy at breakfast or snack time with
your favourite jam.
This recipe makes two loaves of bread; here are the
ingredients you will need.
500 g 0 flour
150 g wholemeal flour
320 ml water
50 g olive oil
12 g brewer's yeast
5 g salt
150 g dried Cosenza figs
In a bowl or planetary mixer, pour the flour, crumbled
yeast and water and start kneading; when the ingredients are mixed, add the
salt and oil and continue kneading.
Now add the dried figs cut into small pieces. When the
dough is well blended, place it in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling film
and leave to rise for about two hours (until doubled).
After the required time has elapsed, move to a lightly
floured surface and divide the mixture into two parts; shape into two loaves
and place in two loaf moulds lined with baking paper and leave to rise for
another hour or so, at room temperature.
Bake in a ventilated oven at 180° for about 25 to 30
