A Figgy Pudding Find

In the past couple of days, I've been looking at numerous online fabric stores. I've been looking for a fabric collection by Moda called Figgy Pudding. Well, it just so happens that I was in TJ Max yesterday and with figgy pudding being on my mind, I came across this deluxe professional pudding steamer in the discount aisle.

When I was at a quilt conference in Newfoundland in 2008, one of the local deserts they served us was a delicious moist cake -like pudding called Figgy Duff. It was deliciously spicy and tasted somewhat like a Christmas desert.

After the conference we did a bit of touring around Newfoundland in the Trinity and Bonavista areas and stayed at a couple of bed and breakfasts. At one of these BnB's, the kitchen counter was lined with well used cookbooks, so I took the liberty to flip through the pages of one of these books and look what I found. A local recipe for Figgy Duff.

I have the recipe, and I have the special pudding steamer. So now when I get home in the spring I'm going to make this and have my niece, Michelle and her new husband Scott over for a nice Sunday supper. I'll serve Figgy Duff for desert since Scott has some Newfie roots and likes Figgy pudding.
Actually, now that I think of it, he was going to get me his secret family recipe for Figgy Duff. I must remind him.
Do you have a favorite recipe for Figgy Pudding?

Hey Gail...I grew up on that stuff, doesn't mean I know how to cook it. I remember my mother using some kind of pudding bag. Regardless of how it is cooked, it was "some" good. Enjoy your duff...Gail

You and your sister, Donna, are just so talented. I absolutely love her embroidered bags. They are beautiful, as were yours. I always find such interesting things on your blog. Great job. Lucy

I've never ever heard of Figgy Pudding!!?!! but then again I had never heard of Yorkshire Pudding before I married Steve. Must be the French in me! teehee!
Can't wait to see if it actually looks like pudding. I was shocked to find out that the yummy buns I enjoyed with my meal were in fact the Yorkshires! bahahaha!
