Fig Soda Bread

Fig Soda Bread

It's a bread that doesn't need yeast or time to rise, so you can make it in no time whenever you feel like eating it.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Fig (dry or semi-dry)
as desired
White flour
250 g
Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
Salt
1/4 teaspoon
Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons
Milk
1/2 cup
Plain yogurt
1/2 cup

Steps

1. Preheat the oven to 180℃. Sift all the dry ingredients together. Combine the milk and yogurt.
2. In a bowl with the sifted dry ingredients, add the fig, cut into bite-sized pieces, and mix lightly.
3. Make a well in the center of the bowl and add the milk and yogurt mixture. Fold it until incorporated (do not knead).
4. Roll the dough into a round shape and place it onto a cookie sheet. Dust it with a small amount of cake flour (not listed) with a tea strainer. Make a shallow crisscross slit with a slightly wet knife.
5. Bake it in the oven for 35 minutes. Lower the temperature to 170℃ and bake another 10 minutes and it is done.
6. Insert a toothpick in the center. If dough sticks on it, bake a little longer.

Story Behind this Recipe

I found this soda bread recipe when I wanted to make bread but was feeling too lazy to let the dough rise.
Since I love figs, I used semi-dried figs this time, but nuts or any other dried fruits should taste good also.
