Quarter the ripe figs. Halve the St Clement’s hot cross buns.
- 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 Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, milk and a pinch of salt in a bowl.

- 4 Put the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat.
- 5 When it starts to foam, place the buns in the pan.
- 6 Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
- 7 Transfer to 2 plates.
- 8 Dust with icing sugar, then top with the figs, a dollop of crème fraîche and a drizzle of honey.
Had for pudding tonight! Really really tasty.
Warming, spicy and fantastic. This dish was a real treat.
Delicious! I substituted plums for the figs and it worked really well.
