What is Figgy Pudding?

Sunday, December 22, 2013

It's an English dish similar to bread pudding. Made from figs, bread crumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg & milk, the pudding is baked, then topped with a scrumptious brandied hard sauce, custard icing, powdered sugar or whipped cream.
The dish was immortalized in the song We Wish You A Merry Christmas and was served by Mrs Cratchit in the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. emoticon
