This recipe is from the Fig Tree Bakery in Ocracoke, North Carolina. Carol Ritchie use to own it, and she made the most delicious bakery items. This is both a cake and a bread~you can eat it for dessert or for a breakfast snack. Wrap it in parchment paper to take to work as a mid-morning snack. You can also grill thin slices and serve with seasonal fruit as an unusual dessert in the summer.
