Fig Oat Bread


  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats, quick or old-fashioned
  • 1 cup dried California figs, chopped
  • ½ cup nuts, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons candied orange peel, chopped
  • ¼ cup butter, melted


  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons orange juice


Beat egg until light; add sugar gradually, beating until fluffy. Add buttermilk, and mix well. In small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture, stirring lightly until combined. Fold in rolled oats, figs, nuts and orange peel. Stir in melted butter. Turn into greased paper-lined 8½x4½ inch loaf pan and bake at 350°F for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until done. Cool in pan.

For Frosting, mix confectioners' sugar and orange juice together until smooth. Remove bread from pan, and frost top of loaf, letting frosting drip down onto sides. Decorate with scallops of candied orange peel, if desired.
