      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!!!

      This was my first time making figgy pudding. I tested two recipes and this was an absolute winner!! It was everything I hoped it would be and MORE! I wanted something with bread in it, so this was perfect. Your family (even your little ones) won't leave until they get some! I used a prepared butterscotch caramel sauce, which was great too! I steamed the pudding in small loaf pans covered with foil, which decreased the cooking time to 1 hour, 20 min. I even froze some for later and it was still moist and full of figgy flavor!

      Incredible Christmas treat! My first Figgy Pudding, but it won't be my last. I used moist California figs. The pudding is more like a fruitcake than bread, but extremely tasty!

      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!

      I didn't care for this cake, mainly because the figs to me tasted too much like raisins and I don't like raisins, but I can't fault the recipe for my personal likes and dislikes. So my review is based on what others said about this cake. Everyone who ate it really liked it a lot. My 8-year old, the one who begged me since Christmas '09 to make it, thought it was perfect and has already put in a request that I make it each year. My husband LOVED it and devoured left overs. Others who had it complimented it a lot. I also made the hard sauce suggested in the first review. I liked steam cooking the cake, which followed the way it would have been baked before we had modern ovens. On behalf of everyone who ate this, thank you for a great recipe and keeping some history alive!
