Has anyone got the recipe for spotted dick? I'm cooking for some Spanish friends and they asked for something traditional. Well, my Nan always said you can't get anything more traditionally British than a spotted dick!!! Shocked

50g Butter
350g plain flour
3 tsp Baking powder
140g shredded suet
85g caster sugar
115g currants
finely grated zest and juice of 2 Lemons
75ml Milk
75ml whipping cream
custard or clotted cream, to serve
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Method
1. Soften half the butter and use to grease a 1.4 litre pudding basin.

2. Combine the flour, baking powder, suet, sugar and currants in a large bowl, mixing well.

3. Melt the remaining butter and stir into the flour mixture.

4. Stir in the lemon juice and zest.

5. Combine the milk and cream in a small jug. Slowly stir enough into the mixture to bring it to a dropping consistency.

6. Pour the mixture into the pudding basin. Cover with a double layer of greaseproof paper (make a pleat in the middle to allow for expansion), tied in place with string.

7. Place the basin in a steamer basket set over boiling water. Cover and steam for about 1 - 1 1/2 hours until cooked. Check the water level now and again to make sure it doesn't burn dry.

8. Serve with custard or, if you're feeling wicked, a big dollop of clotted cream.

My nephew Richard who is covered in acne is deeply offended by the use of the phrase "pimpled Richard.
A spotted dick is a SPOTTED DICK,.......there i've said it, and leave my family out of it!!!!! Smiley

Calm down......don't blame the moderators! The Forum software (which of course comes from the US where I'm sure there are many Richards) has a word filter and your favourite English pud happens to be in there!

It was one of the local councils in Scotland ( Flintshire, I believe) that decided to change the name spotted dick to spotted richard because of of the staff that used the canteen kept making 'childish and immature comments' that annoyed one of the canteen staff. However they received so much bad publicity for doing so that they have now agreed to change the name back to spotted dick.
to quote them, ' ...if we offend any spotted Dicks in the process then tough, they can eat jam rolly poly instead'

three cheers for that!!
