Figs with Raisins and Orange Cream Recipe

How to Make Figs with Raisins and Orange Cream?


Serve: 4


  • 1 cup / 125 g / 4 oz raisins
  • 75 ml / 2 1/2 fl oz tawny port
  • 1 cup / 250 ml / 8 fl oz skim milk
  • 1 tablespoon custard powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 100 g / 3 1/2 oz ricotta
  • 200 g / 6 1/2 oz light French Vanilla Fruche
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • rind strips and juice of 1 orange
  • 8 fresh figs 


  1. Allow the raisins to soak in the tawny port for about 1 hour. Make sure they are all plumped up.
  2. Combine the skim milk and custard powder together in a small saucepan. Mix well.
  3. Add in the sugar to the custard and stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Increase to medium heat and stir further until the custard boils and become thick.
  4. Remove the custard from the heat. Pour carefully into a bowl, then cover well with plastic wrap. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  5. Add in the ricotta and fruche to the custard and whisk with an electric mixer until smooth.
  6. Now, combine the raisin mixture with the cinnamon, orange juice and rind, juice in a small pan and warm over low heat for approximately 3 minutes. Set aside, covered, and keep warm.
  7. Using a sharp knife, cut the figs from the top until two-thirds down the way and into quarters. Make sure the slices hold together.
  8. Transfer the figs to a platter. Spoon over 2 heaped tablespoons of the custard cream mixture into the centre of each fig, followed by a spoonful of the raisins and orange mixture. Serve immediately.
