Date and Fig Quick Bread

Date and Fig Quick Bread
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped dried figs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x4-inch loaf pan.
  2. Spread walnuts onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until toasted and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Mix dates, figs, butter, and baking soda together in a bowl. Pour boiling water over the date mixture. Let sit for figs to slightly rehydrate, 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Stir sugar, walnuts, and eggs into date mixture. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into date mixture until batter is just combined. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
