    Sharon123's Note:

    Adapted from Cook Now Serve Later Cookbook, this is a good tasting bread! You can substitute apricots, raisins, dates, etc. for the figs for variation. I have also halved this recipe and baked 45 minutes in a mini loaf pan. Enjoy!

      I was looking for a quick recipe using dried figs and this was the first one I came across. It was pretty easy and it's delicious!! I started checking the bread after 45 minutes because it smelled like it was done. It took about a full hour to cook. I had to cover it with foil near the end so the middle would finish cooking without burning the top. It's a very good recipe. This is a keeper!

      I did not have the lemon rind, I did use 1/2 whole wheat flour. I checked with toothpick with 15 minutes left and the bread was done. Good bread, I think my cooking time was still to long, a little dry.
