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.
