A recipe for figgy pudding is Food Network's Warm Sticky Figgy Pudding. The pudding takes about 30 minutes to prepare and serves around four people.
To make the Warm Sticky Figgy Pudding, start by combining 2 cups water, 1 1/2 cups chopped dried pitted dates and 1/2 cup chopped dried figs in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove the pan from the heat, and add in 1 teaspoon baking soda. Allow the fig and date mixture to cool for five minutes, then add it to a blender and puree it.
Use a hand mixer to mix together 7 tablespoons butter and 1 cup sugar, then add in 2 eggs. Gently mix in 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour, the pureed date mixture and 2 1/2 ounces grated dark chocolate. Pour the batter into four buttered individual ramekins, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
To make a sauce to go over the pudding, mix together 2 cups brown sugar, 2 cups heavy cream and 14 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over low heat. Once the sugar dissolves, bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for an additional five minutes. Once the puddings have cooled for 10 minutes, cut a cross into the center of each using a paring knife. Pour the sauce into the cross of each pudding.
