Ten Minute Figgy Pudding Recipe




  • 100ml soya milk
  • 1tsp cider vinegar
  • 100g vegan butter
  • 100g soft dark brown sugar
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 2tsp ground allspice
  • 1tsp grated nutmeg
  • 2tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 rounded tbsp shop-bought cranberry sauce
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 100g dried figs, roughly chopped
  • 100g raisins
  • 100g sultanas (golden raisins)

To serve

  • brandy butter, made using dairy-free butter
  • vegan pouring cream or vegan custard


Pour the soya milk into a jug and stir in the cider vinegar. Allow to curdle for a few minutes to form a buttermilk. Meanwhile, add the butter and sugar to a bowl and whisk until light and fluffy.

Fold in the flour, allspice, nutmeg, maple syrup and cranberry sauce. Pour in the buttermilk mixture and stir to combine.

Fold in the apple, figs, raisins and sultanas until fully coated in the mix.

Pour the mix into a 1.2-litre pudding basin or heatproof bowl and cover the top loosely with baking parchment. Cook in a 900W microwave for 10 minutes, then allow to stand for 10–12 minutes.

Carefully tip out onto a plate. Serve with vegan brandy butter or vegan cream, or ladle over flaming brandy.
