Step by Step Method

Step 1

Lightly grease eight ovenproof dishes (1-cup capacity) and place in a large roasting pan.

Step 2

Combine figs and water in a saucepan over a medium to high heat and bring to boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Remove from heat and stir in soda and then cool before placing in a food processor and process until smooth.

Step 4

To make sauce, combine all ingredients in a saucepan and stir over a low heat until sugar is dissolved and then bring to boil and gently boil for about 15 minutes, or until thickened.

Step 5

Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl of an electric mixer until fluffy and then beat in eggs, one at a time, until combined and transfer to a large bowl and fold in flour, then fig mixture.

Step 6

Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce into each dish. Reserve remaining sauce. Divide fig mixture evenly over sauce.

Step 7

Pour enough boiling water into pan to come halfway up sides of dishes.

Step 8

Cook in a moderately slow oven (160C) for about 35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into centre of each comes out clean. Remove dishes and stand for 5 minutes.

Step 9

Turn out puddings into serving bowls and serve with remaining sauce and ice-cream.

We enjoyed this pudding with whipped cream. We skipped the toffee sauce and just served with cream. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
