This book recommends that fat be replaced by potatoes, bananas, prunes
and figs.  Some of the recipes call for minced prunes while others call
for minced figs.  There is a wonderful sounding recipe for Cranberry Buns
which call for the figs.  My question is:  does anyone know if I could
replace the figs with prunes?  It seems reasonable that it would work.  I
would like to make this for Christmas morning.   Here is the recipe in

Cranberry Buns

Yeild: 12 buns

1 1/2 teaspoon dry yeast
1 1/4 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup minced dried figs *
3/4 cup water (plus 2T)
1 cup apple juice concentrate, thawed
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup raisins
vegetable cooking spray

Add all ingredients for dough in order suggested by your bread machine
and process on the dough cycle.  Meanwhile, prepare topping.  Bring apple
juice to boil, and boil 5 minutes or until reduced  by half.  Add
cranberries and raisins and remove from heat.  Coat 12 muffin cups with
vegetable spray.  Divide the topping amoung the cups and let cool. 
Preheat the oven to 350F.  Remove dough from the machine and divide in 12
pieces.  Roll each into a ball and place on top of the cranberry mixture.
 Cover and let rise about 20 min. or til doubled.  Bake 20 min., invert
muffin tin onto a larg tray 
and cool at least 10 minutes.
*If figs are hard, pour boiling water oven them to soften and then drain
