Easy fig ricotta custards recipe
200 grams firm ricotta
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup or corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 or 4 figs halved (or strawberries or cherries)
Preheat the oven to 180°c (360 F).
In a large bowl whisk ricotta, milk, eggs, maple or corn syrup and vanilla until they become smooth and creamy.
Ricotta is a bit grainy but is ok . But whisk until the lumps are gone.
Divide the mixture between four ramekins, resting on a baking tray. Drop some piece of fig or other fruits onto each little custard and pop in the oven.
Cook these custards for about 15 minutes or until they have puffed up and browned nicely. You can keep them in or turn on the grill for a bit of colour. Serve warm or cold.
