Honeyed Figs with Brioche
The number of figs you will need for this Honeyed Figs with Brioche recipe will depend on their size.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 6 minutes
1 tablespoon butter
4 slices brioche, from a whole loaf
250 g (8 oz) mascarpone or thick cream
- Melt enough butter to cover base of the frypan. Cut or tear the figs in half and cook them, cut side down, until golden brown, turning occasionally.
- Meanwhile toast and butter the slices of brioche.
- Drizzle honey over the top of the figs and allow it to bubble up. Remove from heat.
- Serve figs on or beside the toasted brioche with mascarpone or thick cream.
Lyndey’s Note: Tearing the figs gives an interesting appearance. They can also be placed under the griller, cut side up and then drizzled with honey.
Wine: Match the honey intensity here with a late picked or cordon cut riesling or semillon
