Preparation

Quarter the ripe figs. Halve the St Clement’s hot cross buns.

Method

  1. 1 Place the figs skin-side down in a baking dish and drizzle over the honey. Roast in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the figs start to soften.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk and a pinch of salt in a bowl.
  3. 3 Put the hot cross bun halves in a shallow dish, and pour over the egg mixture. Leave to soak for a minute, then turn the buns over and soak for 1 minute more.
  4. 4 Put the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat.
  5. 5 When it starts to foam, place the buns in the pan.
  6. 6 Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  7. 7 Transfer to 2 plates.
  8. 8 Dust with icing sugar, then top with the figs, a dollop of crème fraîche and a drizzle of honey.
