Oh bring us some figgy pudding, oh bring us some figgy pudding... Oh bring us some figgy pudding, - Oh, sorry. Didn't see you there.
Well then, here is a wonderful recipe for making a traditional treat that the whole family will love, figgy pudding. It's not one of your traditional Christmas cookies, but it's just as good!
In a electric mixer, cream the butter until fluffy. Add the eggs and molasses and beat again. Add the figs, lemon peel, buttermilk, and walnuts and blend 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until everything is incorporated. Grease and flour an 8 x 4-inch soufflé dish and pour in the batter. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Spoon the pudding out onto plates or cut it into wedges. Garnish with the whipped cream.
