Step 1: Preheat a fan forced oven to 180C.

Step 2: Grease a one litre flan dish with unsalted butter and dust with ten grams of caster sugar, set aside.

Step 3: Cut the figs in half and place them into the base of flan tin.

Step 4: Place the flour and remaining sugar into a medium mixing bowl and whisk in the milk and cream, add the eggs and continue whisking until smooth.

Step 5: Pour over the figs and place into the preheated oven to bake for thirty to thirty five minutes until the top is puffed and golden and there is only a very small wobble to the clafoutis, this time will also depend on your oven.
