Our Walnut and Fig Sticks make for an impressive bake, full of sophisticated flavours; rich, sweet figs and bold walnuts in Allinson wholemeal dough. We love ours as an accompaniment to salad or popped in our packed lunch on a day out. These delicious sticks are a great recipe for beginner bakers looking to move on to something a little more challenging. Fans may also enjoy our Cherry and Almond Stollen made with Allinson sweet dough.

Method

  1. MIX Mix the flours, yeast and salt in a big bowl. Mix together the melted butter, sugar and water, then mix in with a cutlery knife.

  2. KNEAD Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer). 

  3. RISE Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.

  4. SHAPE Knead the walnuts and dried fig into the dough for 1 minute. Divide the dough into 3, and roll each to a long, thin stick. Lift onto a floured baking sheet.

  5. PROVE Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).

  6. BAKE Brush the sticks with some egg, then use a small sharp knife to slash the tops a few times each on the diagonal. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until when you tap the base a stick it sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack.
