Baked Figs and Nectarines over Ice Cream

This fruit mixture is also great over pound cake or angel food cake. If you have trouble finding late-harvest riesling, try gewürztraminer in its place.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup fruit mixture and 1/2 cup ice cream)


  • 12 none medium light-skinned fresh figs, halved (such as Kadota, Adriatic, or Panachee; about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 3 none nectarines, pitted and quartered
  • 1/4 cup late-harvest riesling or other sweet white wine
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 cups vanilla reduced-fat ice cream (such as Healthy Choice)


Preheat oven to 425°.

Arrange fresh figs and nectarines in a single layer in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Pour wine over fruit, and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle evenly with sugar. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes or until the fruit begins to brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
