Now Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding!

Yep, figgy pudding is a real thing, folks, not just a line in one of your favorite Christmas carols. The thing is, though, it's not actually pudding. It's a souffle. "The British version of fruitcake," to be precise. According to homecooking.com, "Figgy pudding is a spice cake-like souffle made with figs and walnuts. It is moist, delicious, and easy to make." Find your figs at The Fresh Market. The Fresh Market 6306 W Jefferson Blvd Fort Wayne, IN 46804 (260)459-9691 Recipe Recommendation: Figgy Pudding
