Serve thin slices of this bread with cheese, or toast thick slices and serve with fresh figs, bananas or honey. The recipe can be sweetened or spiced up according to your taste.
- Preheat oven to 180C. Into a large mixing bowl, sift self-raising flour, wholemeal flour, baking powder, salt and mixed spice. Mix in sugar, chopped walnuts, lemon or orange zest and grated ginger.
- Making a well in the centre, add lager and diced figs. Fold mixture into a smooth batter. Pour into a baking paper-lined loaf pan and bake for 60-70 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
