You've been singing about it for years in Christmas carols, but figgy pudding is not what you think it is

Figgy pudding just went and blew our minds.

It probably doesn't happen that often, but when you think of figgy pudding (made famous in the Christmas carol We Wish You a Merry Christmas), you probably are imagining an alcohol-soaked, fruitcake-like dessert filled with candied fruit and nuts. You'd be wrong.

That dessert is known as plum pudding (also sometimes called Christmas pudding), which comes from the Victorian era, and is often soaked in alcohol and set on fire. Scary, I know.

So what is figgy pudding?

Figgy pudding is actually a spiced and steamed porridge-like dessert. The original figgy pudding comes from the Medieval period and looks like a bowl of white slop.

Oh, and figgy doesn't necessarily mean that the pudding is only filled with figs. “Figgy” is a word used for all sorts of dried fruit, including dried figs, apricots, apples, prunes, and sultanas (variety of golden raisins).

On the positive side, it’s filled with booze (brandy, to be exact) and spiced with all of the traditional holiday spices we love like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

So there you have it. Consider that next time you request some figgy pudding while singing carols, and know that somewhere a sugar plum fairy weeps for the bowls of breakfast cereal we all sing about.

Over the years I&rsquove made several different steamed puddings for Christmas. The first is our English Christmas Pudding and the second is this Christmas Figgy Pudding. Check out both and decide which one you want to try!

This recipe can be steamed or baked. Although steaming takes longer, it is my preferred method.

While I love any excuse to use my lidded pudding molds, (affiliate link), this pudding can easily be made using any bowl, like a stainless or heavy glass bowl you have on hand.

Instead of using a lid, fit the bowl with a couple of layers of foil. Before filling the mold or bowl, be sure it fits into the saucepan or Dutch oven you&rsquoll be using to steam.
