  • 20g salted butter, diced
  • 12 figs, halved
  • 100ml Marsala
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 50g light brown soft sugar
  • 200g mascarpone

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, gas mark 4. Put the pine nuts on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 5-6 minutes, until golden. Remove and allow to cool.

Put the figs in the dish, cut-side up, drizzle over the marsala, then scatter over the lemon zest and sugar. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until soft and sticky. Remove and leave to cool a little. Serve the figs and marsala sauce with generous dollops of mascarpone and the pine nuts scattered over.
