Sweet Figgy Pudding

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars
268

"Very sweet steamed pudding, more like a cake, that is typically served at holiday time. I cook this into my double boiler. Even though this cooks on simmer, it is wise to check that the pan does not boil dry! This is traditionally served with hard sauce."

This is a family favorite, made each Thanksgiving and Christmas. The original recipe was handed down by my great grandmother.

This was a huge hit! I was nervous because I'd never eaten figgy pudding, let alone made it, but it turned out great. I didn't make any sauce to go with it, but drizzled cream over it instead. (...

Too sweet.
