Gourmet Recipe: Spotted Dick

Spotted Dick, now I did hear rumours that the nanny brigade in the UK were going to ban this delightful and most traditional British Pud from being called Spotted Dick on the basis that it may refer to the galloping knob rot…what a load of tosh, and who gives a damn anyway…

Spotted Dick

So with that in mind here is a recipie for the most Spotty of Dicks possible

Ingredients (serves two)

200 gms flour

2 gms salt

10 gms baking powder

100 gms chopped suet

75 gms sugar

100 gms currants

Milk to mix

Method:
Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the suet, sugar and cleaned currants and mix with sufficient milk to make a soft dough. Place this on a greased and floured pudding cloth (white cotton, not new). Shape into a roll. Roll up the cloth and tie at both ends leaving room for pudding to swell. Steam for two and a half hours hours. Serve with sweet white sauce or custard. Ooer!
