Steamed Figgy Puddings

Serves 8-10 Prep Time 5 hours   Cook Time 90 minutes   Rated:

No Christmas feast is complete without a Figgy pudding and this one is gluten free, healthier than most, but just as decadent as you might expect!

Bearing in mind that traditional steamed puddings are steamed for around 6-8 hours, the shorter steaming time on these is a bonus, however, don't be afraid to keep steaming them if you like a cakier lighter texture to your pud. Very English, but very delish. Make them more Aussie by serving with lashings of Killer Vanilla Ice Cream or to be all traditional, go with Brandy Cream Sauce or even Christmas Brandy Butter. Whichever way you have them, enjoy and ho ho ho!
