Every year We Wish You A Merry Christmas plays on the radio, and the question that always follows “What is Figgy Pudding?” So this year I made it my goal to wonder no more, by surprising my family with homemade Figgy Pudding for Christmas. 🙂
The whole process was an adventure from finding and prepping the ingredients, to making and serving the pudding. I honestly had no idea what I was making until it was on my plate! I always pictured a fig puree with the consistency of pudding, but instead it was a cake with caramel sauce!
Surprisingly Aldi had 99% of the ingredients I was looking for Chopping the dates . Whole ones looked like bugs lol
Chopping the figs – very messy work
Boiling the dates and figs
What I expected the figgy pudding to be lol
Grating chocolate is time consuming and messy work
Combining all the ingredients…
Fresh outta the oven – it’s a cake?!
Prepping the caramel sauce
Voila! The finished product.
I had a lot of fun doing it, and even more fun sharing it with my family! Merry Christmas everyone!
Thanks for reading!
