About this Recipe

My favourite dessert, at the moment, is baked figs – I love doing this dish at an event. People always say “No, I don’t like figs’, then I persuade them to try and they discover a taste never experienced before. Figs were never my favourite fruit either, until I cooked them in a woodfired oven.
Fresh figs

Brown sugar


Marscapone cheese

Raspberry coulis

Recipe Instructions

Take some figs, slice off the tops and cut cross ways into the figs about an inch deep.

Place in a baking tray and sprinkle rum and then brown sugar over the figs.

Bake for about 10 minutes at 400-500F and the figs open like flowers.

Sometimes, I add some extra rum and put back under the fire of the woodfired oven for a final flambé.

Fold marscapone cheese gently with the sieved juice from fresh raspberries and add extra raspberry coulis.

This makes a perfect addition to the figs.
