Ingredients

  • 650 grams strong flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 7 grams yeast (dried)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 450 milliliters water (tepid)
  • 200 grams dried figs (chopped)

  3. Lightly grease a large bowl, cover and leave to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Once the dough has risen, add the figs and gently work into the dough.
  5. Cut the dough in half and form into balls.
  6. Place the dough balls on a floured a baking tray and lightly sprinkle with a little flour.
  7. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
  9. Before placing in the oven, score the dough with a bread knife, making 2 or 3 cuts on the surface.
  10. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and the base sounds hollow when tapped.
  11. If making one single loaf, increase the baking time to 40–45 minutes.

This a delicious bread that tastes moist for a long time because of the figs in it. The black pepper is a nice contrast.
