Caramelised New Season Figs With Cinnamon Mascarpone
For this recipe I used a blow torch, but if you don't have one it's easy enough to just use a preheated grill.
1 punnet fresh figs, cut in half lengthways
¼ cup white sugar
2 teaspoons icing sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon vanilla essence or extract (optional)
Line an oven tray with tin foil.
1. Place figs cut side up on prepared tray; sprinkle each fig with about 1 teaspoon of sugar, adding more if necessary to coat the surface of the fig.
2. Use the blow torch to caramelize the sugar, until golden brown. Alternatively, place under preheated grill for 2-3 minutes.
3. Add all cinnamon mascarpone ingredients to a medium bowl, mix well to combine.
To serve, place figs in bowl and spoon over a dollop of mascarpone. For an extra crunch, crumble over your favourite biscuits (ginger nuts would work perfectly)
