Fig Pudding

Yield 12 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sherry
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped stewed figs
  • 2 cups stale breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Hard Sauce

How to Make It

  1. Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs; beat well. Add sherry and cinnamon; mix well. Stir in figs, breadcrumbs, and pecans.

  2. Spoon mixture into a well-greased 1-quart pudding mold, and cover tightly with lid.

  3. Place mold on a shallow rack in a large stock pot with enough boiling water to come halfway up mold. Cover pot; let simmer 3 hours, replenishing water as needed. Unmold and serve with Hard Sauce. Store leftover pudding in refrigerator; reheat before serving.
