RECIPE: Baked Figs with Ice Cream

I so so love a simple dessert, you know the type, easy and quick but at the same time super comforting. To me, a 'comforting' dessert consists of two things - hot and cold! I love a good hot and cold combination, like hot apple pie and ice cream or sticky toffee pudding with ice cream - oh its so damn good!
This is my take on a hot and cold dessert but a super easy one! Baked figs are super tasty, they caramelise in the oven and then go even sweeter!


To make this super simple recipe, simply...

  • Pre-heat the oven to around 200 degrees
  • Score the tops of the figs with a cross and then push them down at the top so the insides pop out a little
  • Drizzle with some kind of sweetener such as honey, maple syrup, date syrup or golden syrup if you're feeling naughty!
  • Bake the figs in the oven for around 30 minutes or until they are oozing with juice and starting to caramelise on the top
  • Bring them out of the oven and serve with ice cream - I have been loving the Swedish Glace one at the moment as it's vegan friendly and is super yum!
  • Sprinkle over the top some cacao nibs and frozen berries, you could also add some toasted pecans too which is also super tasty!

When I'm feeling super lazy, I make this and just omit the figs but have warm, toasted pecans instead with ice cream, frozen or fresh berries and some cacao nibs - yum yum yum!! Toasted flaked almonds work well too, and the one on the bottom is a variation I did for my hubby as a quick dessert! Digestive biscuits on the bottom, then hazelnut spread, ice cream and frozen berries! Tasty!!
