Oh My Goodness! - Salted honey and fig cheesecake

I was browsing Pinterest yesterday and spotted a beautiful recipe image, I quickly popped over to "A House In The Hills" to check out the ingredients. Salty and sweet, a divine contrast of flavours for the palate, with the added bonus that Sarah's salted honey and fig cheesecake is dairy free. I also couldn't help noticing that there doesn't appear to be any gluten in her recipe so as soon as figs are in season again I will be making this little beauty. 

When I was living in the Middle East I used to buy mini wooden crates of neatly packed fresh figs flown in from Lebanon. I would indulge in them 'au naturale' for breakfast or cut them in half and serve with yummy goats cheese and sometimes I would lightly stew them and pile on loads of thick, creamy Greek yogurt, divine! Oh and I've just remembered, Poppy's friend Pippa the schnauzer has a HUGE fig tree in her back garden overhanging their pool, I will have to offer to help pick them next season before these delicious fruits end up on the bottom of their pool ;)

If you would like to make this desert, please visit Sarah's blog for her recipe and ingredients.

Bon appetit


  1. I saw that, and i thought it was gorgeous too! Aren't the figs just so pretty. I didn't notice that it was dairy free though, and i'm totally off all dairy, so will have to try and make it!


  2. So happy you liked! Thanks so much for featuring! xx- sarah

    1. Your welcome Sarah, unfortunately figs are not in season here yet, can't wait till they are as I am dying to try this cheesecake.

  3. Dairy and gluten free although it didn't mention gluten free. I love figs for their prettiness too.
