Don’t know where Gran got the recipe from, but we love it, it’s easy & tasty!
Always nice the next day too.
We always put a sprig of holly on the top, ’cos Gran did!!
It doesn’t have any figs in it, but we’ve always called it that because of the Christmas Carol.

We always put a sprig of holly on the top, ’cos Gran did!!
