Roasted Agave Fig Layered Dessert


Difficulty: Easy-Medium

Serves 2


I got my hands on a bunch of figs and needed to use ’em up, and quick! Some fig flavoured Spun Fairy Floss was also lying around and I figured that it would be a crime to not put the two together. This layered dessert is perfect for Autumn… or any other season really.


  • 6 fresh figs
  • 2/3 cup agave syrup
  • 2 cinnamon sticks (plus a couple more for garnish)
  • 1 carton Soyatoo Topping Cream (or another cream replacement)
  • 1/3 cup vegan cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup caramelised buckinis (if you can’t get these just used toasted muesli or something similar)
  • Fig flavoured Spun Fairy Floss


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut each fig in half from the top down and spread them out in a baking dish.
  3. Chuck in a couple of cinnamon sticks and drizzle with agave syrup.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes before removing and allowing to cool.
  5. Combine the Soyatoo, cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract and blend until smooth.
  6. Pop a fig in the bottom of each serving glass before adding some of the cream mixture and buckinis.
  7. Continue with a couple more figs, cream, buckinis, remaining figs, cream and a sprinkle of buckinis.
  8. Allow to chill until you’re ready to serve.
  9. Before serving, add a cinnamon stick and a tuft of Spun Fairy Floss to garnish.
