"Dense, moist cake reminiscent of the Victorian dessert, this figgy pudding was the perfect finale to a chestnut-stuffed, Christmas goose dinner. Serve warm with whipped cream flavored with liqueur."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Gently heat buttermilk and figs in a saucepan over medium-low heat until softened, 10 to 15 minutes; set aside until cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a tube pan.
  3. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.
  4. Beat eggs in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer on high for 1 minute. Add fig-and-buttermilk mixture, bread crumbs, butter, almonds, orange marmalade, orange zest, and orange-vanilla flavoring to the beaten eggs; beat on low speed until blended. Gradually add flour mixture while beating until just incorporated into a batter. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Grease a sheet of aluminum foil; use to cover pan.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until firm and pulling away from sides of the pan, about 2 hours. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Fiori di Sicilia is a floral orange flavoring used in Italian Pandoro. Although not absolutely necessary for this recipe, I thought it added an exotic what-is-that-flavor to the dessert.

Will make it again at Christmas time. We did a test run yesterday and it was lovely. Made a brown sugar/butter/cream sauce to pour over a slice and it was a perfect match. A big glass of cold mi...

What's it taste like? A delicious, moist, heavy, orange fruitcake! Agree with 1 reviewer, mine was done in 1.5 hours. Awesome recipe, thanks!

I could not find the vanilla /orange extract either so used the recommendation of 1/2 tsp vanilla and 6 drops orange oil. So yummy. My cake baked for 1.45 min. I topped it with orange flavore...
