Fig and Pistachio Loaf Cake
135 mins (prep 75, cooking 60)
10 ingredients
8-10 servings
I picked up this recipe around ten years ago at a health food convention. It was put out by either the California Fig Board or Pistachio Board - I forget which. Plainly, they were in cahoots. Anyway, this is just delicious - probably my all-time favourite loaf cake. Prep time includes soaking of fruit and nuts.
