Paleo Fig Loaf

 In Paleo, Recipes

About a month ago I asked my Mum if she had a loaf pan I could borrow, she showed up with your normal rectangle loaf pan and my grandmothers cylinder loaf tin. After confirming what it was my hubby gave it a birthday in the sandblaster and I washed it up. I decided then and there I was going to try create a fig loaf in it. Today after my morning classes and clients I made my way into the test kitchen…I’m joking we don’t make the kind of money that can justify 2 kitchens and I don’t have the time to clean 1 let alone 2! So I made my way into my kitchen, chucked my apron on and got mixing away, this here is what I’ve created for you and it is a tasty little treat!!
