Spiced Coffee & Fig Compote Recipe


Total Time

Try this delicious condiment on a bagel with cream cheese, with greek yogurt for breakfast, with vanilla ice cream, the options are endless!

This was such an easy recipe to make and I was pleasantly surprised by the incredible bursts of caramel and molasses. I can imagine this with would go beautifully pairing with vanilla flavours like Maleny Food Co Vanilla Ice cream and vanilla scones with cream. Yum!


  • 375ml brewed coffee
  • 200g dried figs stem removed and figs quartered
  • 60g local honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • zest of one large orange
  1. In a medium-sized pot combine the brewed coffee, quartered figs, honey, spices and orange zest. Bring to a boil then reduce and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove figs from pan. Simmer the liquid for an additional 5 minutes over low heat until reduced and syrupy.
  3. Combine figs and syrup and allow to cool to room temperature on the counter. Then transfer and store in a jar and refrigerate until ready to serve.
