Just in case anyone wants a good giggle (and I would say that includes almost everyone here ):

Spotted Dick

8 ounces flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 ounces chopped suet
3 ounces sugar
4 ounces currants [or raisins]
milk to mix

Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the suet, sugar and cleaned currants and mix with milk to make a soft dough. Place this 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 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Serve with custard or jam sauce.

Take dough and flatten out onto sheet of white paper. Shape into a round approximately 6 inches across, and perhaps one half inch thick.

Place dough round and white paper on cooking sheet.

Have oven heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cook for approximately one half hour, or until just starting to brown.

Cut round into six wedges.

Let cool.

[I usually make at least two batches, as two rounds will fit onto a cooking sheet]

Whenever I make this for potlucks, people come and scoop these up first so that they get a piece. It's always the first dessert to disappear.

That's just wrong. You are less likely to lick dough off your hands if you use disposable gloves.

Well, actually, I usually dip into the dough, and shy a few macadamias my way when I'm doing prep .

The reason I started wearing the gloves is because there was just TOO much sticking to me, and not enough getting put in the oven .

I had Belgian waffles for breakfast. Fitting given my wife's sense of humor. I've been doing a lot of riding in the rain lately so I return home covered in grit.

Ooooohhh, bread pudding! My grandma made that for dessert once (for 5 people), but only, like, 1 other person had any, so I ate the rest.

Huh. Thanks for making sure I do something for myself tomorrow - Cause I know I already have 2 banananans that are sooooo on they're last legs that I'm afraid of opening my overhead file ...


But OTOH - I'm going to take a couple eggs, bagel and a piece of cheese and will make an office nukem breakfast that I'll have people checking their pockets for change to go buy something. Yup. I will be making breakfast tomorrow.

Thank you!!

hehe and thank you for reminding me to think about the banananananans wrapped up in a grocery sack and stuffed in my overhead file. ... (please Mom, don't give me stuff that your roommates don't eat - there's only so many bananananannas that I can eat!).

<looks sideways ... ok, don't get any funny ideas...>

Yes, likewise! I should be easy to spot wearing my BikeForums t-shirt (has my name on the back, too ).
