  • Frozen Figgy Pudding
  • For the Semifreddo:
  • 250 grams of dried figs, chopped
  • ½ cup of raisins
  • 1 tablespoon of treacle or molasses (from sugar cane)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of Amaretto or similar liqueur (optional)
  • 3 large free range eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of soft brown sugar
  • 250 mls / 8Ā½floz or 1 cup of cream, lighly whipped
  • For the Chocolate sauce:

  • ½ cup of cocoa
  • 1 large dessert spoon of golden syrup, light molasses or honey
  • ½ cup of hot water
  1. Combine the chopped figs, raisins, treacle and Amaretto and leave to infuse overnight, or longer.
  2. Add the fruit mixture to your food processor and pulse to break it up a little.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric beater or your stand mixer whip the eggs and brown sugar until they are very thick and pale, approximately 8 minutes.
  4. In another bowl whip the cream.
  5. Gently fold the cream and egg mixtures together, then fold through the fruit.
  6. Pour the combined mixtures into previously lined loaf tin, or simple plastic container as you would for ice cream.
  7. Freeze for 4 to 5 hours or overnight.
  8. Serve the Frozen Figgy pudding as a log and cut thick slices or roll generous scoops as I have here along with some chocolate sauce - see below.
  1. To prepare the chocolate sauce
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and stir over a medium heat until the sauce begins to bubble.
  3. Strain any lumps and transfer to a pouring jug, allowing to cool to room temperature before serving.
