How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Combine rind, figs, and raisins in a bowl. Bring sherry to a boil in a saucepan; pour over fig mixture. Let stand 15 minutes.
Combine flours, salt, and next 4 ingredients (through baking soda) in a bowl. Place eggs in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment; beat 2 minutes. Add oil, buttermilk, honey, and vanilla; beat until combined. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture; beat just until combined. Use a spatula to stir in fig mixture (including liquid), pistachios, and olives.
Spoon mixture into a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan coated with baking spray. Bake at 375°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes. Remove bread from pan; cool completely.
