Spotted Dick Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 4-6

100 g/4 oz/1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
10 ml/2 tsp baking powder
100 g/4 oz/2 cups fresh white breadcrumbs
100 g/4 oz/1 cup shredded (chopped) vegetable suet
100 g/4 oz/2/3 cup currants, or half currants and half sultanas (golden raisins)
75 ml/5 tbsp milk
Classic Custard Sauce, to serve


Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in the breadcrumbs, suet and fruit. Mix with enough of the milk to form a soft, dropping consistency. Shape into a roll on a double thickness of greased greaseproof (waxed) paper. Wrap up loosely and tie the ends with twist ties or string. Steam in a steamer or colander over hot water for 2 1/2 hours.

Serve sliced with Classic Custard Sauce.
