This pudding may be made with figs for a dark, rich, traditional pudding, or with dried apricots for a lighter, slightly tarter version. Whole or halved dried apricots may be used. You'll need eight small pudding molds. Steam for 2 hours to produce moister puddings, 2 hours 20 minutes for denser puddings.
Crumble: A British name for a blend of berries or other fruit with a textured sugary topping, often with oats; the result is all but synonymous with a crisp. Our individual servings include rhubarb, strawberries, and raspberries nestled under an oatless blend of butter, brown sugar, flour, salt, and grated orange zest.
