  • Servings : 6
  • Prep Time : 20m
  • Cook Time : 40m
  • Ready In : 60m

Ingredients

  • 800g Fresh Figs – cut into  2 or 3 circles
  • 2/3 cup Red wine – light variety
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 70g castor sugar
  • 70g soft butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 2 60g eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla essence

Method

In a heavy based all stainless steel 22-24cm round fry pan pour the wine and reduce it over medium to high heat for 5 minutes. Add the fig circles coating with the wine and cook the figs until the wine’s consistency is reduced further to a thick coating, roughly 5 more minutes. Take the pan off the heat and let it cool while beating the butter and sugar together in a bowl till light and fluffy with an electric beater for roughly 5 minutes. Add the eggs and beat further till well combined; now sift in the flour, baking powder and fold the mixture with a spoon while adding the vanilla and the milk. Spread the mixture evenly over the cooled figs and place the pan towards the top rack of the oven and bake in a preheated electric oven (moderately hot at about 180 degrees Celsius) for 30 to 40 minutes approximately.

When ready loosen the sides of the pan with a spatula and then give the pan a little shake to make sure it’s all loose. Place a serving plate or a dish that is larger than your pan and separate the dessert by turning it upside down onto your serving plate/dish. Serve it warm with a dollop of sweetened thickened cream or with a dollop of plain or flavoured yogurt.

Variations and Suggestions

I picked up these figs from someone’s garden- now I wish I had picked a lot more because they were delicious. If the figs are too small then I suggest cutting them in two circles only, cut the extremely large ones into three. Roughly, you will need about 8 to 10 large figs to fit the base of the pan evenly in one layer. Place the cut side of the fig facing down so when inverted after cooking the cut side will look more appealing on the top side of the dessert. For those who like their figs sweeter, you may add some sugar to the wine to form a sweet syrup that will add sweetness to the figs and those preferring some sauce/juice at the base then add up to 1 cup of wine instead of 2/3 as suggested and follow the same method as in the recipe. I don’t particularly have an overly sweet tooth so I make mine as my recipe suggests.

For those who like it to be sweeter still, I suggest serving this dessert with vanilla custard, ice cream, or beat thickened cream with some sugar. For others, preferring extra tartness, use some creamy yogurt.
