Directions

  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.

This is terrific. Mine came out spongy and dense. Old bread from baking was used for the bread crumbs. I used 1/2 tsp vanilla and about 6 drops orange oil. I am familiar with Fiori de sicily but can no longer afford it. So I learned to substitute the above in varying ratios and get just about the same flavor profile when I think it is called for. Than you very much.

Just made this pudding and it is delicious. Dense fig flavor. It only took 1 1/2 hours to cook instead of two.
