Every once in a while everything comes out just right, or almost just right. The scoring on this bread and the other loaf I’m not showing you did not meet my expectations. Disappointing, but also the motivation and the fun to keep trying.
I did not have apricots so substituted figs in this recipe and something about the combination produced loaves that were not just tasty, bright, a little crunchy infused with toasted walnuts, but also the softest bread I may have ever made.
We ate half of one loaf for dinner and have continued to eat it at every meal since.
Dried figs have twice the sugar content of dried apricots. Maybe the bugs overate.
