Toasted Sourdough with Caramelised Figs, Caramel & Crème Fraiche



Time to up your game. Make mum feel appreciated and recognised for all she does with a super decadent and gourmet brekkie. There are few fruits which just scream decadence more than a fig.


In season right now- it is the one time of year they are at their best and...they won't break the bank...but shhh, you don't have to tell her that part.


This does have a few steps (although completely doable) and probably best made by an adult- or at least under close adult supervision. Have the camera ready to capture her surprise when she sees what you mastered this year.

Makes 4 servings

What you need:

  • 40g butter

  • 1/3 cup of caster sugar

  • ¼ cup Grand Marnier (optional)

  • 8 figs, halved

  • 4 slices of your favourite sourdough

  • A couple tablespoons of crème fraiche to serve

Method:

  1. Make the caramel first by adding ¼ cup of sugar and 30g of butter to a small pot. Stir continuously over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes until golden and then add the Grand Marnier if using. If using the Grand Marnier, cook for a further 1-2 minutes until reduced slightly.

  2. Set the caramel aside to cool.

  3. Coat the cut side of the figs with the remaining sugar. In a non-stick fry pan, heat the remaining butter over medium heat and fry the figs sugar-side down for about a minute until lightly caramelised.

  4. Toast the sourdough.

  5. Serve the sourdough with the caramelised figs on top, drizzled with caramel and with a dollop of crème fraiche.
