Fig Square


1 package (or 1 tablespoon) active dried yeas, t
1/4 cup warm water (110 to 115 degrees)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
1 egg
1 tsp orange rind, grated
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup unbleached white flour
1 1/2 cup dried figs, snipped
1 cup water
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1 confectioners sugar (optional)

Soften the yeast in the warm water. Combine the sugar, salt, oil,
milk, egg and orange rind in a large bowl. Beat well. Add the yeast
mixture and the 1 cup of whole wheat flour. Beat. Add the remaining
flour. Extra flour may be needed if the dough is sticky.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5
minutes. Transfer to an oiled bowl, cover with a damp towel and let
rise for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, prepare the fig filling by combining the figs, water and
allspice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer
until the mixture is thick. Mash the figs with a potato masher or
large spoon during cooking. Cool.

Punch down the dough. Roll into a 1/2-inch thick rectangle 8 inches
wide. Spread with the fig filling. Roll up like a jelly roll. Fit
into a lightly oiled 8-inch-square pan. Seal the edges together. At
each corner cut with a scissors to fit into the shape of the pan.
Make two slashes on top of each side. Let rise until doubled, about
30 minutes. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool.

May be sprinkled lightly with confectioners sugar just before
