Banana and Dried Fig Bread  Tried Tested

I’ve made this bread, changed it the second time around. the picture included is one I took (makes one 9×5 inch loaf)

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tbsp banana flavoring or vanilla
1 cup chopped dried figs
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 eggs
3 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/4 cup)

Heat oven to 350 F. Coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, banana, buttermilk, oil and flavoring until evenly blended.
Beat in flour mixture until just blended. Stir in figs and walnuts.
Pour into pan and bake 50 – 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan and finish cooling on rack.
