fig tart served with honey ice-cream recipe

Chef, Nigel Stuart from Morley Hayes has provided readers with a delicious dessert recipe.

Fig Tart with Honey Ice-Cream for four people.


for the Franzipan:

4oz butter
4oz caster sugar
2oz plain flour
2oz ground almonds
2 eggs
Almond essence

Cream the butter and caster sugar; fold the flour, almonds and almond essence into the creamed mixture.

for the Honey Ice-Cream:

1 and a half pints of double cream
4 tablespoons honey
12 egg yolks
300g caster sugar

Boil together 1 pint of the double cream and honey. Whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. Pour the boiled cream & honey over the egg & sugar mixture. Stir in the remaining half pint of double cream. Ideally, place into an ice-cream churner machine, churn until thick.

80z puff pastry


Roll out the puff pastry to the thickness of a £1 coin and cut out 6 inch discs. Place a tablespoon of franzipan in the centre, slice 2 figs and arrange them in the shape of a fan on the top. Bake on a tray for approx 20 minutes.

“ I just wanted to say how interesting and useful the magazine is to us both. We have so far used one of the recipe's, eaten at one of the restaurants and contacted some of the local traders. I am particularly keen to support local businesses and this is a way of getting their contact details. Thanks for such a well produced and useful LOCAL magazine“
