8-12 figs (2-3 per person)
75g butter (and a little extra for greasing the baking tray)
8 tbsp honey
A dash of brandy (optional)
Chopped hazlenuts, flaked almonds or pistachios to top (optional)

double cream


First, preheat the oven to gas mark 7 (220C) and butter your baking tray. Prepare the figs by cutting a deep cross into the top, then gently squeezing to open like a flower. Place on the tray.

Now it’s time to prepare the gorgeously easy sauce. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat with the honey and a dash of brandy if desired. Once hot and starting to brown, pour the sweet mixture into your crossed figs. Bake in the oven for 6-10 minutes until tender. Leave for a few minutes before serving.

Place in your favourite dish and top with your choice of nuts. This is best served with some good quality double cream!
