Spotted Dick

Some would rather call this dessert “Spotted Dog Pudding.”  The spotted part refers to the currants in the dough and the word dick is a colloquial word for pudding. 


8 Ounces Self-Rising Flour

4 Ounces Shredded Suet

8 Ounces Currants

2/3 Cups Cold Water

1 Ounce Sugar

1/8 Teaspoon Salt

Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, suet and the currents.  Keep mixing and add a little water at a time until the whole becomes firm dough.  Roll into a long cylindrical shape that is about 8 inches long.  Carefully place the rolled pastry into a small pan that is close to 8 inches diameter as possible.  On top of the stove, place this smaller pan into a larger pan that is filled with boiling water.  Do not fill so that the water spills into the smaller pan.  This is to make a steamer to “steam” the pudding.  Put on the lid to the larger pan and steam for about 2 ¼ hours making sure that the water is topped up in the outer pan with boiling water. If you would rather steam in the oven you can wrap in roil and bake at 400° F for 1 ½ hours.  Serve with custard.  Serves 6
