Sarasota Honey Company Figgy Pudding Recipe
You probably remember the term "figgy pudding" from the old Christmas song, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." I have always wondered what they were talking about in that Christmas carol. Well here it is; a recipe for Figgy Pudding with a Florida twist 😉 Garnish cake with Sarasota Honey Company Fig and Pecan Honey Spread. If you want to be a little naughty mix tbs of rum in the honey spread before garnishing the cake.
16 ounces dried figs
1 3⁄4 cups milk
1 1⁄2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground nutmegs
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup melted butter
1 1⁄2 cups breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
Jar of Sarasota Honey Company Fig and Pecan Honey Spread
2 tbs of rum (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a a medium saucepan, heat milk and chopped figs over medium-low heat but do NOT bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. The the milk will soften the figs.
In a medium bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
In a large bowl, beat eggs one minute on high. Reduce speed to low and add butter, bread crumbs, orange peel, and warm fig mixture.
Slowly incorporate flour mixture. Beat until just blended.
Pour the mix into the greased bundt pan. Level top as much as possible. Cover the mold with a piece of aluminum foil greased on one side, greased side down.
Place the mold in a roasting pan and place on oven rack. fIll with hot tap water 2 inches up the side of the mold. Bake for 2 hours or until the pudding is firm and it is pulling away from the side of the bundt pan.
Remove the pudding from the water bath. Remove the foil and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before unmolding. Invert bundt pan onto a serving plate and remove mold. It should come away easily.
