For many, Holiday traditions include gathering to sing Christmas carols, many dating back to the Victorian-era. Have you ever been curious about “figgy pudding” which carolers demand in “We Wish You a Merry Christmas?”
There have been recipes for this famous Christmas dessert since the 15th century, which reached its peak in popularity during the late 19th century. This version has been adapted from Great British Puddings, with figs as the star ingredient. It is a lighter pudding than plum and you don’t need to make it well ahead of time.
