"I found this recipe from Buderim Ginger which is a long-standing Australian ginger business. In my opinion they have the finest and best ginger products you will ever buy! Serve this loaf sliced on its own ~ or spread with butter and a ginger marmalade. I would say that walnuts could be used instead of pecans."

Very good bread. My conversions may have been off a little but this bread worked out for us. I used fresh figs, cyrystalled ginger and almonds. I also used regular sugar. I made one medium size loaf and one individual size loaf with this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
