Fig Brûlée

This dessert takes less than 5 minutes, but is tasty and not too sweet. Ideal for the end of a heavy meal.


  • 6 whole figs, sliced in half, stalks removed
  • 12 tsp of caster sugar
  • 3 generous scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream


  1. Remove the figs from the fridge at least an hour before serving.
  2. Place the fig halves, cut side up, on a flame proof surface and sprinkle each half with most of a tsp of sugar.
  3. Use a blow torch to carefully caramellize the sugar on top of each fig, working away from yourself from nearest to furthest.
  4. Place 4 halves on a chilled plate with a scoop of ice cream.
  5. Serve with a knife and fork to eat.

Serves 3.
