Fig Tart with Raspberry Sauce
I’ve seen many foreign bloggers who use fresh figs in their recipes and I always wonder what’s the taste like as I’ve never tried fresh figs before. I was very happy and excited when I saw fresh figs for the first time at the Fairprice supermarket last week. Without second thought, I just grabbed two punnets home and immediately cut two figs to taste it… mmm… they were soft and sweet. OK… what am I going to do with the rest? Definitely not going to eat them up like that! So I quickly googled for fresh fig recipes and found one at The Sophisticated Gourmet. The recipe was easy-peasy, not much preparation needed and I also made some raspberry sauce to go along with it. I really love the end result ~ the golden flaky pastry, natural sweetness and juicy of the fresh figs and raspberry sauce, the combination was so wonderful ~ simply perfect for our afternoon tea!
- Ingredients: serves 4
3 Fresh Figs, rinse and gently wipe dry with kitchen towel
4 pcs Frozen puff pastry, size 4 inch square (place frozen puff pastry in the chiller for few
hours before use)
some coarse sugar
80g Frozen raspberries
20g Sugar or add to your taste
- Cut fresh fig into half (remove stem), then slice to 3 wedges at each side.
- Place the frozen puff pastry on baking sheet. Prick holes in pastry with a fork and sprinkle some coarse sugar over it. Place cut figs on the pastry and bake at preheated oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
- In a small pot boil frozen raspberries and sugar together and stir over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, mash raspberries with a metal spoon. Leave aside.
- To serve, place fig tart on serving plate with some raspberry sauce. You may strain the raspberries sauce through a fine sieve or leave it as it is.
this is a really good to try..love the colours and presentation..
Oh Ann, your tarts are absolutely beautiful! I've seen so many recipes using figs this year and I must admit, I too have been more than intrigued. However, unlike you, I just never made up my mind to actually try any of them myself.
I'm delighted you have. I can only imagine the deliciousness:) I'm going to save this recipe just in case I get brave enough to give them a "real" try. Thank you so much for sharing…
this looks not only amazing but also easy to make! happened to have everything in the fridge, gonna try today! one question, have you ever replace the figs with other fruits?
Can use canned peaches or fresh strawberries. Best with some sauces or custard.
This looks amazing!
Love the presentation! I have tasted fig jam but I have yet to try the fresh fruit. For some reason I am not seeing it at the grocery stores. Hopefully they will bring some in next year.
I've not seen fig jam before. Will check at Mark and Spencer, they might have it.
They look so yummy & healthy… i love fresh figs so much when I was in England. They are so sweet & soft to taste. Must try to buy some here. Thanks for your awesome pictures. Make my mouth watering…. haha
Thank you JoJo! Hope you try this easy recipe.
That looks delicious and amazing Ann! I'm always amazed at the difference between fresh and dried figs but would always prefer the first! Too bad they are hard to come by and such a short season!
Simone, We always used the dried figs for boiling soup and I definitely love to try more on bakes with the fresh figs too.
The tarts are beautiful Ann! I never know what to do with figs, but I would love it if these were sitting in front of me! 🙂
Hi Lyndsey, this is my first time trying figs and they are very delicious. You want me to pass you some 😀

Looks yummy! I love figs a lot and they are great for baking!
Love your fresh fig tarts very much.
They are simple and easy to prepare and yet are so tasty. Have great weekend!
Thank you Mui Mui. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
These look absolutely gorgeous! Wonderful shots Ann. When i was living in Australia, we used to have fresh figs when in season, they taste great dont they! Nothing like those dried or packaged ones. I think its also one of the superfoods too. Love this recipe, thanks for sharing.

Beautiful pastry, Ann! They look so enticing. I love fresh figs though they're not the easiest fruits to find in KL! I think the only times I've eaten them is at a hotel buffet.
Thank you 🙂 Wonder how the figs prepared in the buffet.
Looks very beautiful, Ann.
Makes me want to use figs more often – it has such a natural sweetness.
Sounds delicious and it's beautiful!
Ann, what I love about the fresh figs is they are sweet but not too sweet. This is a clever & easy way to make a delicious & pretty looking dessert! I went to the library to borrow 3 cookbooks yesterday & I actually saw the same version of dessert but using apricot. Figs are very expensive now & it isn't the apricot season yet but I'll definitely try this in the future!
Jessie, I'm going to make this again on the weekend because it can be ready within 30 mins and everybody loves it. Will also make some with peach too 🙂
I never knew we could find figs locally, I shall look for them. I too have always admired the gorgeous bakes made by bloggers overseas using figs. They have such a lovely colour, like in your tarts. I am sure it is very delicious too.
hmm, yum yum, the fresh fig tasted even better after baked ho..
simply so gorgeous! your bakes are always a feast for the eyes!
