Fig Pudding

3/4 cup dried figs, ground
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup fruit juice or milk
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Cut off the stems of the figs and grind with a food chopper. Soften the butter and whip until fluffy. Then mix in the sugar, add the eggs and stir well. Then add the figs, fruit juice (or milk), salt, soda, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly blended. Place in muffin pans or molds and steam 45 minutes. (To steam: Place pan in large roaster pan. Pour about 2 cups water in the roaster around the pan, then place in the oven and steam.) Serve with whipped cream. These will keep in the refrigerator and may be reheated to serve.
