    Chef James Thomas's Note:

    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.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 15

    Yield:

    Cake

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a a medium saucepan, heat milk and chopped figs over medium-low heat but do NOT bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. The the milk will soften the figs.

    5. 5
      Slowly incorporate flour mixture. Beat until just blended.
    6. 6
      Pour the mix into the greased bundt pan. Level top as much as possible. Cover the mold with a piece of aluminum foil greased on one side, greased side down.
    7. 7
      Place the mold in a roasting pan and place on oven rack. fIll with hot tap water 2 inches up the side of the mold. Bake for 2 hours or until the pudding is firm and it is pulling away from the side of the bundt pan.
    8. 8
      Remove the pudding from the water bath. Remove the foil and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before unmolding. Invert bundt pan onto a serving plate and remove mold. It should come away easily.

      AWESOME PUDDING! And yes, it's not like our puddings over here the the USA! My mom used to make her Christmas pudding just this way (although it wasn't a fig pudding), & she'd do the hard sauce & a flaming sugar cube on top! This fig pudding tastes great all on its own, but I made a sauce recipe from Zaar (Raspberry Fig Sauce) that really did hit the spot! Thanks so much for sharing this figgy pudding recipe ~ It's a real keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]

      Absolutely delicious! Having never made - or know what it was - a figgy pudding, yesterday was spent making this amazing post-Xmas dessert. I work as Activities Programmer in a long-term care facility and during the Xmas season the age old question of "what does 'Bring us a figgy pudding' mean?" kept popping up. One quick search and this recipe was found! The residents (and staff) watched all morning as I prepared, then back they came after lunch to enjoy our Figgy Pudding with a dollop of Orange Hard Sauce. So warm and sweet, with a nice bit of crunch (fig seeds) and a hint of orange (peel). The orange hard sauce was the perfect topping. Everyone gave their own personal review, with "two-thumbs up" repeated by all ... plus requests to be on next year's Xmas menu! Thanx again Chef James Thomas and Food.com!!!

      I was inspired to make this after watching A Christmas Carol. I've always wondered what it was, and I had all the ingredients on hand - including a stoneware pudding mold that I've never known what to do with. It was also our first year to have a Christmas goose for the main course, so what could be better as a sweet finish to the evening? What a great decision it turned out to be! This pudding was moist and flavorful, and the texture was perfect. I ended up using panko instead of regular breadcrumbs, and tangerine zest instead of orange. This will be a new Christmas staple in our home. Thank you, Chef James Thomas!
