Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.
Wash the figs and cut halfway through from
the top. Gently squeeze open then put in
a baking dish.
Spoon a little of the honey into each fig
and add some of the comb, if using. Dot the
mascarpone on top and add a tiny pinch of
the spices. Splash a small amount of water
into the dish and bake the figs for 12 minutes.
Remove from the oven, baste in the juices
and allow to cool down a bit. Serve on their
own or with vanilla ice cream.
