8 ounces flour

4 ounces chopped suet
3 ounces sugar
4 ounces currants (or raisins)
Milk (to mix ingredients)

Sieve flour, salt and baking powder together. Add the suet, sugar, and currants (or raisins) and mix with milk to make a soft dough. Place this soft dough on a greased and floured pudding cloth and shape into a roll. Roll up the cloth and tie both ends, leaving room for the pudding to swell. Steam for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Serve with custard of jam.

Ya know, in my quest for new and unusual foods (and yes sometimes that backfires in serious ways) - I ran across a spotted dick in the tin in a local market last weekend. Had it in my hand even to purchase and then put it down. Some day I, too, shall have a spotted dick (especially if someone else says it's good).


<edit> ooooo just realized/saw it contains dried fruits - especially raisins - and I do not like dead fruit bodies.

Don't care for spotted, would rather have treacle pudding, problem is have not found any place around here that sell's suet.

I am lucky in that a few shops around here still cut and trim meat, so they will save the tallow if requested. I have had to make the suet from scratch, though.
