Number of Servings:
- 16 ounces - dried figs
- 1 3/4 cups - milk
- 1 1/2 cups - all-purpose flour
- 1 cups - sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons - baking powder
- 1 teaspoons - ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoons - ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoons - salt
- 3 - eggs
- 1/2 cups - melted butter
- 1 1/2 cups - breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoons - grated orange peel
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a a medium saucepan, heat milk and chopped figs over medium-low heat but do NOT bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. The the milk will soften the figs.
In a medium bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
In a large bowl, beat eggs one minute on high. Reduce speed to low and add butter, bread crumbs, orange peel, and warm fig mixture. Slowly incorporate flour mixture. Beat until just blended.
Pour the mix into the greased bundt pan. Level top as much as possible. Cover the pan with a piece of aluminum foil greased on one side, greased side down.
Place the pan inside a roasting pan and place on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with hot tap water 2 inches up the side of the bundt pan. Bake for 2 hours or until the pudding is firm and it is pulling away from the side of the bundt pan.
Remove the pudding from the water bath. Remove the foil and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before unmolding. Invert bundt pan onto a serving plate and remove mold. It should come away easily.
Serve with a hard sauce.
