Baked Figs

Baked figs are one of my favourite fruity desserts, however figs are often quite pricey in the UK. Therefore when I saw that you could get 4 for 85p in the supermarket I couldn’t resist!

This recipe is so easy, it takes a total of 15 minutes. It’s perfect for different dietary requirements as it can be free-from everything apart from figs and honey.


  • figs
  • runny honey
  • cinnamon (optional)


Rinse the figs, snip off the tough bit at the top and cut a cross into the top.


Put about half a teaspoon of runny honey into the middle and sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. You could also try ginger.image

Bake in a hot oven (around 200ºC) for 10 minutes.


Give them 5 minutes to cool down. I had one with half fat crème fraîche but you could use: cream, mascarpone, yoghurt, soya yoghurt, oat cream, coconut cream or any ice cream you have in the house. The options are limitless.

You could serve these at a dinner party or just have them at home whenever you see cheap figs like me!
