Steamed Fig Pudding

A steamed pudding made according to the recipe here given never fails to please. As the name, steamed fig pudding, indicates, it is supposed to have chopped figs added to it, although raisins will answer if figs cannot be obtained.

Sufficient to serve twelve.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped figs or raisins


Cream the butter and add the sugar, molasses, and milk. Mix and sift the dry ingredients and stir these into the mixture. Fold in the chopped figs or raisins and steam in buttered molds for 2 to 3 hours, depending on the size of the molds. Serve hot with any desired sauce.
