This mocha version is seductively charismatic but won’t leave you feeling guilty despite its indulgent appearance. If figs are not in season, try other seasonal fruit such as plums or early summer cherries.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the panna cotta

Quantity Ingredient
100ml filtered water
1 sachet vege-gel powder or another vegetarian gelatine substitute
350ml almond milk
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
20g raw cacao powder
double shot espresso coffee
100g coconut sugar

For the roasted figs

Quantity Ingredient
4 figs
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  1. Place the filtered water in a small bowl. Add the Vege-Gel powder and stir until the powder is dissolved. Set aside.
  2. Pour the almond milk into a medium saucepan over a low–medium heat and add the vanilla paste, cacao powder, espresso coffee and coconut sugar. Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved and the cacao powder is incorporated.
  3. Stir in the Vege-Gel liquid and bring it to the point just before the milk boils. Remove from the heat immediately. Strain the liquid through a fine sieve (strainer) into a pouring jug (pitcher). Pour the panna cotta mixture into 4 ramekins (custard cups) or serving glasses of your choice. Leave to cool completely and then refrigerate for 3–4 hours or until set.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray (baking sheet) with baking paper (parchment paper). Cut each fig in half and place on the baking tray. Drizzle with the maple syrup and vanilla extract and roast in the oven for 10–15 minutes or until the figs are golden and soft. This will take varying lengths of time due to how ripe your figs are. Remove from the oven once roasted and allow to cool in their juices.
  5. To serve the panna cotta, turn the moulds out onto plates and serve with 2 roasted fig halves and a drizzle of the figs roasting juices.
