The name of this pudding always raises a laugh in Britain. However, if you are shy the pudding can also be called Spotted Dog…
240g self-raising flour
240g currants and raisins, soaked in brandy
A pinch of salt
150 ml cold water
120g shredded suet
Grease a 1.1 litre pudding basin.
Sieve together the flour and salt, then add the shredded suet, sugar and dried fruit.
Mix these ingredients with enough water to make a firm dough.
Cover securely and steam for 2 hours.
Turn the pudding out on to a hot dish and serve with custard.
If you want to make a Spotted Dick in the traditional shape, form the mixture into a cylinder about 20cm long and roll in a pudding cloth, boil for 2 hours.
