The history of figgy pudding dates back to 16th century England. Its possible ancestors include savoury puddings such as crustades, fygeye or figge (a potage of mashed figs thickened with bread), creme boiled (a kind of stirred custard), and sippets. In any case, its methods and ingredients appear in diverse older recipes. Today, the term figgy pudding is known mainly because of the Christmas carol "We Wish You A Merry Christmas," which repeats, "Oh bring us a figgy pudding" in the chorus, indicating that it was a Christmas tradition to visit demanding this treat (in a fun way)
