When the carolers come to your door, will you be ready? A strategic stockpile of figgy puddings may well be the only thing standing between you, and certain doom. Protect your family from the singing hordes. Make a figgy pudding today!
There are a couple of directions you can take this:
• NPR's figgy pudding (Similar in style to a bundt or rum cake)
• More traditional British-style figgy pudding (With suet! Expect something more dense and fruitcake-esque.)
