"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." — sueb

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. (Maybe that's weird? I don't know. We liked it.) My husband and two young kids both loved it, including the one who won't eat figs. The only part I wasn't sure about was the orange peel strips. It seemed strange to leave them in there. But again, I'd never had it before, so I don't know.
