This was wonderful, I was a little nervous after reading the reviews it seems like people love or hate it, but I did make quite a few changes. I didn't bother with the streusel at all, seemed a little pointless to me and I def didn't miss it. Instead of figs I used raisins and since I don't eat nuts I used a can of pineapple tidbits in place of the almonds. As well since I only had olive oil I used a full cup of applesauce and 2 tbs of olive oil, as well vanilla in place of the almond extract. I also threw in some cloves and nutmeg for extra spice. It was moist flavorful and I can't stop eating it. In the end it made 1 full loaf in a standard loaf pan as well as a mini loaf.
