  • Beat butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add eggs and molasses to the butter; beat until smooth. Add figs, lemon zest, buttermilk, and walnuts; beat until incorporated, 1 minute. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

  • Blend the flour mixture into the batter until combined and pour into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the pudding cake comes out clean, about 1 hour.

I loved this recipe for figgy pudding. I suggest adding some of the milk to the figs and chopping them finely in a food processor. I make these in jumbo muffin tins so that I have easy individual servings. They are kept in the freezer and when I want to indulge I warm one up and pour cream over them. Read More

Cake was done way sooner and it was good I checked as it had already dried out. Also good that I made a figgy pudding before and knew to boil the dried figs and then puree to add to the mixture. The directions in this recipe do not tell you to chop puree etc. Be sure you do! Read More
