I have always wondered what they were talking about in that Christmas carol. Well here it is; a recipe for Figgy Pudding. I always pictured a traditional pudding like we know it, but the English mean something different. It's actually more bread or cake-like. The taste may be a little strange to some, but to me it smells and tastes like Christmas.
The figgy pudding should always be served warm. If you can't serve it fresh out of the oven, it will taste just fine to warm it in the microwave for a few seconds.
