Subject: Americano Figs with Vanilla Mascarpone
 

This is a great recipe for those times when you fancy something a little different. Americano coffee enhances the delicate flavour of the figs and the vanilla mascarpone provides a decadent dimension to the dessert.

Ingredients – Serves 4

Americano Figs
1400ml freshly brewed strong black coffee
6 figs
200ml coffee liqueur such as Kahlua
200g brown sugar
2 tsp rice flour

Vanilla Mascarpone
2 tsp vanilla essence
250g mascarpone
2 tbsp icing sugar
200ml double cream, whipped to soft peaks


Method
  1. Add the coffee, Kahlua and sugar to a saucepan and place on a high heat. Bring to the boil then reduce heat, add figs and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until the figs become tender.
  2. Remove the figs from the saucepan and leave aside to cool.
  3. Once the figs have cooled cut into halves
  4. Add the rice flour to the saucepan of coffee mixture, stir thoroughly and place to one side to cool
  5. To make the mascarpone cream, add the mascarpone to a mixing bowl and gently fold in the vanilla essence, icing sugar and whipped cream
  6. Using a chefs’ ring or smooth edge of a pastry cutter, spoon half of the mascarpone into the ring then carefully lift the ring away. Repeat this process onto the three remaining serving plates. Place three fig halves on to each place and drizzle over coffee sauce
