Dried Fig Gingerbread
Enjoy this new take on a classic gingerbread that incorporates dried figs and maple syrup!
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
Cut 6 dried figs into thin slices, then mix all the dry ingredients together (figs, flour, spices, baking soda, and yeast)
In a pan, heat the almond milk, water and maple syrup, making sure not to boil.
In a food processor or using a hand mixer, mix the dry ingredients while slowly adding the liquids until it becomes consistent and smooth.
Pour the batter into a greased pan and place the remaining 2 figs, thinly sliced, on top.
Reduce the oven to 300°F (150°C) and bake for 40 minutes or until a knife tip inserted into the center comes out clean.
The gingerbread will keep for several weeks when kept well wrapped!
