Serves: 22 person(s)
Preparation Time: 20 mins
1 cup unsalted pistachios
1 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, or 3 Tbsp egg substitute
1 tsp vanilla
In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat the butter until fluffy, and gradually beat in the sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until lightened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the dry ingredients and beat just until blended. With a spoon, blend in the fig mixture.
Turn batter into a greased 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch loaf pan, and bake in preheated oven until the bread just begins to pull away from the sides of the pan and the top springs back when lightly touched, 1 to 1-1/4 hour. Cool in the pan on a rack for 15 minutes, and then turn out and cool completely. Wrap in plastic and store overnight before serving. Cut into thin slices.
