Today I’m sharing a delicious recipe, this one is perfect for cold nights and is best served with a cup of tea and some hot custard. Spotted Dick is a very traditional British pudding and although it takes a while to cook it tastes fantastic. All the ingredients can be picked up from the baking aisle of the supermarket. I’ve made this one based on a recipe I found in a 1950s magazine, and I’ve reworked it using modern measurements and oven temperatures.
120g Shredded Suet
1tbsp Baking Powder
85g Caster Sugar
Rind of half a lemon
20g Candied Peel
2 Beaten Eggs
1/2 Cup of milk.
How to Make:
1. Prepare a greased pudding basin.
2. Mix all the ingredients in the order given above.
3. Place mixture into the pudding basin to about three quarters full.
4. Place lid on pudding basin or tie a sheet of baking parchment over the top.
5. Steam in a large pan of water for 2 and a half hours.
6. Turn out pudding and serve hot with custard.
I’ve not made many steamed puddings before, however after trying this one and seeing how easy it can be I’m definitely going to try out a few more. Let me know if you give this one a go I’d love to know how you get on.
