Tags: Quick eats
  • 50 g (2 oz) unsalted butter
  • 8 large ripe figs, halved
  • 2 tablespoons light muscovado sugar
  • 75 ml (3 fl oz) Marsala
  • crème fraîche or mascarpone cheese, to serve
  • Melt the butter in a nonstick frying pan and place the figs into the frothing butter, cut side down. Fry for about 2 minutes until golden, then turn over.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over the figs and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in the Marsala and allow it to bubble up, then reduce the heat and simmer for a further 2–3 minutes to reduce the alcohol and produce a syrupy sauce.
  • Spoon into bowls and serve immediately with dollops of crème fraîche or mascarpone cheese.
