Festive Fig Fondants

December 23, 2013

My December recipe for Rangemaster is now live and this month I bring you festive fig fondants. They are a good alternative to Christmas pudding as they can be made ahead of time – the take about 15min to cook and can even cooked from frozen  AND they keep up your fruit intake Christmas.

Festive Fig Fondant

At the risk of sounding self congratulatory, these are really really good. Normally after baking something I feel so emerged in the flavour that I don’t actually want to eat any of it. These on the other hand, I had to put out of sight to stop me eating them.
