I concur, absolutely! Christmas and Figgy Pudding… just belong together.
Making Christmas Figgy Pudding
Over the years I’ve made several different steamed puddings for Christmas. The first is our English Christmas Pudding and the second is this Christmas Figgy Pudding. Check out both and decide which one you want to try!
This recipe can be steamed or baked. Although steaming takes longer, it is my preferred method.
While I love any excuse to use my lidded pudding molds, (affiliate link), this pudding can easily be made using any bowl, like a stainless or heavy glass bowl you have on hand.
Instead of using a lid, fit the bowl with a couple of layers of foil. Before filling the mold or bowl, be sure it fits into the saucepan or Dutch oven you’ll be using to steam.

Lidded Pudding Mold
I have a collection of lidded pudding molds that vary in size from 1 quart to 2 quarts. This recipe calls for a 2-quart mold. If you’re using a 1-quart mold, reduce the recipe by half.
Using a bowl works great too.
