25 grms butter, melted
8 large figs
3-4 tablespoons Maple Syrup
½ cup flaked almonds
¾ cup thickened cream
¼ cup mascarpone
Preheat oven to 180°C and lightly grease a small oven proof dish with melted butter. You want a baking dish small enough to be able to tightly fit the figs. The butter will help the figs caramelize during cooking.
Cut figs into quarters BUT only halfway down, leaving the base attached. Figs should be able to be fanned out. Stand the figs upright into the greased dish and drizzle with maple syrup. Sprinkle over flaked almonds. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20 mins or until figs soft and almonds are golden. Mix together the thickened cream and mascarpone.
Remove figs from the oven and spoon a dollop of cream mixture into the middle of each fig. Top with a light drizzle of honey to serve.
