This is a lightly sweet quick bread made out of figs and bananas. The two fruit pair up and give a lot of natural sweetness to the dish.
Figs are in season, and I have tons! Good news is that I can make a lot of fig dishes now.
Like I said this is a quick bread. So even though you must bake the bread for 1 hour. It doesn't need proof at all, and saves a lot of time.
Don't skip the cinnamon in this recipe. It's a crucial ingredient when it comes to this bread.
First off, the smell coming from the oven door is amazing because of the cinnamon, and second, it adds such a great flavor.
Make sure to cut your figs pretty small. You don't want too big chunks of figs. You can serve this fig banana bread with coffee as well.
