Banana Walnut Slice with Maple Roasted Figs

When you have to entertain in a moments notice, certain recipes come into play. It’s not always necessary to make something completely new. You could just twist what you already have on hand and turn it into an elegant plated dessert. And that’s exactly what I have done here. Sudden guests made me turn muffins i had in the freezer and figs into this. This is just an example with what I had on hand. See what you can put together with what you have. You would be amazed with what you can come up with, I guarantee!!

Recipe :

Cut off the sides of a muffin or a loaf cake ( which became the cooks treat 😉 ) to create a square. Set it aside. .

In a pan, add maple syrup and some water. Allow it to boil for a little bit till syrupy. Take the muffin squares and turn it all over, once in the syrup. Place on a plate. .

To the same pan add some butter and cook the glaze till it’s like caramel. Cut the figs in half and place flesh side down on the pan, till glazed and charred in the syrup. Place aside. Add a splash of water to the pan to deglaze and allow one boil. Set the syrup in a bowl if guests want some extra.

To serve, place a cake square on the plate, place a fig on top, spoon some sauce over before serving.

If you don’t have cake, that’s absolutely fine. The figs would be great with some yogurt or ice cream too with a drizzle of the syrup.

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
