Studded with chopped dried figs, this yeast bread would make an excellent addition to a cheese board, or you could simply slice and serve with a wedge of cheese as a Spanish-style dessert course, accompanied by a glass of dry sherry. It’s also great toasted and topped with a spreadable cheese like ricotta for breakfast. To give it a glossy sheen, an egg wash made of yolk and milk is brushed over the dough before baking.

Ingredients

  • 220 grams warm water
  • 15 grams fresh yeast
  • 1 teaspoonsalt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 8 dried figs (cut in small pieces)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • cheese (to accompany)

  3. Place the dough on a slightly floured surface, and with your fists press it down to remove the gas.
  4. Shape the bread by kneading, and place in a loaf pan lined with parchment paper, or in a cake mold as pictured.
  5. Let rise for another 30 minutes, covered with a moist cloth.
  6. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  7. In a small bowl, mix 1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon of milk, brush this mixture on the loaf to gild.
