    Makes me think of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” – “Oh, bring us some figgy pudding, and a cup of good cheer.” :) It’s a wonderfully festive photo!

  • Many thanks Celeste, I had fun making them yesterday. We have plum pudding. What is figgy Pudding is it along the same theme but with figs added?

    The Christmas carol is traditional, and I just assumed that figgy pudding is more or less the same thing as plum pudding. I found an article and recipe at National Public Radio:

  • Thanks Celeste, always learning as I have never heard of the name Figgy pudding before. Yes they do seem to by alike. We cook it in a pudding basin which is metal with a metal lid or like they did in that recipe with the foil over a bowl. I have never seen a Aussie pudding cooked in this type of basin as we some times use this type for cakes. I have added a like to one of our Australian magazines called Taste.
    Cooking is my other passion.
