When I was first introduced to baked figs with honey and cinnamon I thought I had died and gone to heaven…they were that good! I was in a restaurant and the baked figs were served on top of vanilla ice cream, as simple as this sounds, it was so amazing I asked the owner of the restaurant how she made them and she was kind enough to give me the basics.
I recently had some friends over for a dinner party where we made a few appetizers, including the apricot appetizer I blogged a few weeks back, some pasta and we finished it off with these amazing baked figs. Everyone loved the whole meal but even still to this day, my friend Bela will bring up the baked figs so I thought it was worthy of posting the recipe.
For this recipe you have to use fresh figs, not dried. Wash the figs, slice them in half and place in a baking pan
top with honey and cinnamon
bake for 30 minutes or until soft (I flipped mine 1/2 way through cooking)
place 3 pieces on a scoop of ice cream, preferably while hot, sprinkle a little sliced almonds on top and serve
Sometimes the simplest things are the best tasting. This is truly an amazing dessert that your friends will talk about long after the meal, just like my friend Bela. Let me know what you think of this?
