Easter recipe: Grilled Figs, Honeyed Mascarpone & Hot cross buns

Late afternoon with a cup of tea or as a spoil for brunch, this recipe is the perfect Easter indulgence.

Grilled figs, Honeyed Mascarpone & Hot cross buns
Makes 6

You will need
For the grilled figs
12 ripe figs
2 Tbls honey
For the Mascarpone
1 tub (250g) Mascarpone cheese
2 Tbls runny honey
Zest of 1 lemon
½ cup cream
½ tsp vanilla extract
For the Hot cross buns
6 Extra spicy Hot cross buns (Woolworths stocks them)
3 Tbls butter, melted

Honey for serving.

How to make it
For the grilled figs
Pre-heat a grill.
Trim and slice the figs in half and brush with honey.
Grill until slightly charred and bursting.
For the Mascarpone
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
Beat the mixture until peaks form.
For the Hot cross buns
Slice the buns in half and brush generously with melted bullet.
In a pan or on a flat grill, toast the buns (butter side down) until golden. Turn and toast briefly on the other side.

Stack the hot grilled figs onto the toasted buns, dollop with Mascarpone and drizzle with honey.

*If you’re not a fan of Hot cross buns, have the only the figs and Mascarpone together – just as delicious!
