Ingredients

How to make it

  • Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, suet , cinnamon and the currents/raisins.
  • Keep mixing and add a little water at a time until it becomes a 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.
  • Place this smaller pan into a larger one then fill the larger pan with boiling water, but 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 1/4 hours, making sure that the water is topped up in the outer pan with boiling water.
  • Serve with custard.

    Oh my goodness, I haven't thought about Spotted Dick in years, not since I left England. Thanks so much for this recipe. We always put a double layer of wax paper over the pot that the pudding was in & tied it on with string, to keep the wet out of the pudding while it was steaming

    Can't bring myself to cook or bake with suet - is butter a decent substitute? I just love the name!!

    Yes, the English are our close relations so I have heard of, and even eaten spotted dick. And with a nice warm caramel or custard or rum sauce it is very nice!
