Sweet omelette with figs and brandy chocolate sauce
Say, "I love you" with this sweet breakfast.
- 3 figs quartered
- 5 ml butter
- 5 ml sugar
- 15 ml brandy
- Brandy chocolate sauce:
- 25 g cream
- 50 g chocolate, cut into small pieces
- 15 ml brandy
- 3 eggs
- pinch salt
- 15 ml sugar
- 10 ml butter
- To serve:
- 2 fresh figs, quartered
Figs: Fry the figs in a pan with butter and sugar until soft. Add the brandy and flambé. Set aside.
Chocolate sauce: Heat the cream and poor over the chocolate. Stir until melted and smooth. Add the brandy and stir well.
Omelette: Crack the eggs into a bowl, add salt and sugar and blend with a fork. Heat a 22 cm non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the butter and brush around the surface of the pan. Pour the eggs into the centre of the pan and stir vigorously with a rubber spatula for 5 seconds. As soon as a semi-solid mass begins to form, lift the pan and move it around until the excess liquid pours off into the pan. Using your spatula, move it around the edge of the egg mixture to help shape into a circle and loosen the edge. Let the omelette sit in the pan for 10 seconds without touching.
Shake the pan to loosen the eggs mixture from the pan. Add the figs and juice to the omelette. Using your spatula, fold over one-third of the omelette. Slide the omelette onto a plate and fold over the other side so that the omelette is a tri-fold. Smother with chocolate sauce and serve immediately with fresh figs and a glass of bubbles.
