Terra Breads makes this fabulous fig and anise bread. I just made up a mixture of olive oil and maple syrup, brushed it on and toasted it to makes these darlings. They were delicious with some salty olive tapenade on top to play off the sweetness of the figs and maple syrup.
What you need:
part of a loaf of fig & anise bread, thinly sliced
What you do:
1. As thinly as you can, slice the bread. Place the slices onto a baking sheet.
2. Mix some olive oil with some maple syrup, less syrup than oil.
3. Brush a little of the mixture onto each piece of bread.
4. Toast them in the oven on about 250-300F, watching closely so they don’t burn.
They were great with the olive tapenade, but I would imagine a sharp cheese or some cream cheese would be fantastic.
