Ooohhh I was soo excited and was looking forward to our long weekend for one whole month
Infact I had made a long list of To-do/to-go/to-meet/to-eat/to-make items
And now ….it’s gone!! Leaving every little thing in my wish list undone!!!
Why you ask..?
For me the weekend started 3 days early…coz of 3 days of medical leave and a stupid stupid eye infection
And it ate almost whole of my long weekend..grrrrrrr
Can it be any worse than this?
Now I have to wait for two whole months for the next long weekendL
Anyways it’s time to clear out the list from my drafts folder…
So here is a fudgy, chewy and healthy slice…This was made some 3 weeks back and was lazily sitting in my drafts folder !!
250 g dried figs, finely chopped
1 cup boiling water
100 g butter, softened
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Honey
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/3 cup Skimmed milk
Preheat oven to 170°C
Line a sqaure baking pan with parchment paper
Place figs and boiling water in a bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to soften.
Once the figs has been softened, transfer to a food processor and blend for few seconds until a thick paste is formed.
Beat butter, sugar, honey and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add fig mixture, flour and milk. Beat to combine.
Spread mixture into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
