Fig Frangipane Tart Recipe

Got our hands on some Fresh Turkish Black Mission Figs, which are extremely sweet amd perfect for serving plain or with yogurt or tangy fresh cheese (mascapone, fromage, blanc, or farmers cheese) or dessert, It have blackish-purple skin and dark pink flesh.

Got them at SGD5 for 4 figs. Tried 4 figs plain and decided to bake this Fig Frangipane Tart to bring home for breakfast with my parents.

Sugar to Sprinkle (caramelization)

Arrange the Figs on top leaving some space between each fig. Sprinkle them with Sugar. squeeze some Honey on each fig. Bake in the oven for around 40mins to 50mins until it turns golden brown and a cake tester inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Serve it warm or cold. ENJOY!!!!!!

Some tips from us after our 1st attempt:
- Don't bake the tart crust too long, as the part 2 bake will make the tart curst brown and a crispier.
- Don't push the figs in to much as it will sink in as per our Fig Frangipane Tart outcome.
