Slow Cooker Steamed Fig Pudding

As figs are in season and so cheap at the moment I decided to buy some more and try them in a cake, well a steamed pudding actually. I used the Summer Fruits pudding recipe I'd previously tried and adapted it slightly to produce this Autumn pudding that could also be a great alternative to a Christmas Pudding - yes I dared to mention the 'C' word!


Slow Cooker Steamed Fig Pudding

115g Stork Baking Liquid
115g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
140g SR Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Mixed Spice
30g Dark Brown Sugar
4 Figs, chopped
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

  • Beat the Stork, caster sugar,eggs & vanilla together
  • Stir in the flour, baking powder and 1tsp of the mixed spice, until smooth
  • Place the dark brown sugar, other tsp of mixed spice, chopped figs and cinnamon together
  • Tip the figs into a greased heatproof bowl (one that fits into your slow cooker and large enough for the ingredients with room for rising)
  • Pour the batter over the figs
  • Cover the bowl with foil and place into the slow cooker
  • Pour boiling water around the sides of the bowl until halfway up the sides of the bowl
  • Cook on high for 2-3 hours until the cake is cooked through
  • Turn out onto a plate and serve with ice cream, cream or custard
