      What delight! My only issue here is; how can 4 figs ever be enough for 8 persons? At least 1 is required for each person, if not more. There is enough crumb topping and luscious sauce to go with more than just 4 figs. And if in rush or feeling lazy, no need to bother with the crumb topping or oven, it's perfect without it.
