Roast figs with honey and Marsala

    23 min

    I absolutely love figs, and Pizza Express do these baby figs in a Marsala and cinnamon syrup with mascarpone. This is a healthy version of it that is just as fulfilling.

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Cut a deep cross down into each fig, nearly to the bottom, then squeeze the sides of each fig to expose the juicy flesh. Place the figs into a lidded baking dish.
    3. Drizzle over the honey and Marsala wine, ensuring some runs down inside the figs. Cover with the lid.
    4. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Serve the figs immediately with ricotta cheese and the boozy syrup from the baking dish. Alternatively, serve with ice cream, custard, cream or mascarpone.
