- Put the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the suet, currants, sugar, lemon and orange zest.
- Pour in 150ml milk and mix to a firm but moist dough, adding the extra milk if necessary.
- Shape into a fat roll about 20cm long. Place on a large rectangle of baking parchment. Wrap loosely to allow for the pudding to rise and tie the ends with string like a Christmas cracker.
- Place a steamer over a large pan of boiling water, add the pudding to the steamer, cover and steam for 1½ hours. Top up the pan with water from time to time.
- Remove from the steamer and allow to cool slightly before unwrapping. Serve sliced with custard.

One of the most popular British puddings is spotted dick. The latter half of the phrase was a nineteenth-century British word for plain pudding; the spots are typically raisins, but we used dried currants. (The dessert also goes by spotted dog.) In this recipe, the time-honored suet (beef fat) is swapped for butter. Vanilla-specked creme anglaise is on top.

- Set a round wire rack in bottom of a large stockpot. Set a 5-cup pudding basin or ovenproof bowl (or two 3-cup basins) on rack. Fill pot with enough water to come about three-quarters of the way up sides of basin. Remove basin; dry, and butter inside. Set aside. Cover pot, and bring to a boil.
- Butter a 10-inch round of parchment paper; set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in butter until pieces are no larger than small peas. Stir in sugar, lemon zest, and currants. Stir in lemon juice, then eggs and milk; stir until combined.
- Transfer batter to prepared basin. Place parchment round, buttered side down, over basin. Make a pleat in center of parchment. Cover with an 11-inch round of foil. Make a pleat in center of foil to allow room for pudding to expand. Cut a piece of kitchen twine about 7 feet long. Wrap twine twice around basin over foil, just below lip. Knot to secure. Tie loose ends to twine on other side of basin, creating a handle.
- Carefully lower pudding into boiling water, and cover pot. Return to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and steam until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of pudding registers 180 degrees, about 2 hours, adding boiling water occasionally to maintain level.
- Transfer pudding to a wire rack. Let cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge of bowl to loosen; invert pudding onto a serving plate. Serve warm, with creme anglaise if desired.

- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
- In a large mixing bowl sift in the flour and bread soda, add the salt, sugar, and sultanas. Mix well by lifting the flour and fruit up in to your hands and then letting them fall back into the bowl through your fingers. This adds more air and therefore hopefully more lightness to your finished bread. Now make a well in the center of the flour. Break the egg into the bottom of your measuring jug, and add the buttermilk to the14 fluid ounce (425 milliliter) line (your egg is part of your liquid measurement). Pour most of this milk and egg into the flour. Using 1 hand with the fingers open and stiff, mix in a full circle drawing in the flour from the sides of the bowl, adding more milk if necessary. The dough should be softish, not too wet and sticky. The trick with spotted dick like all soda breads is not to over mix the dough. Mix it as quickly and as gently as possible thus keeping it light and airy. When the dough all comes together, turn it out onto a well-floured work surface. Wash and dry your hands.
- With floured fingers roll lightly for a few seconds just enough to tidy it up. Pat the dough into a round, pressing to about 2-inch (6 centimeter) in height. Place the dough on a baking tray dusted lightly with flour. With a sharp knife cut a deep cross on it, let the cuts go over the sides of the bread. Prick with knife at the 4 triangles as according to Irish Folklore this is to let the fairies out!
- Put in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then turn down the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 35 minutes or until cooked. If you are in doubt about the bread being cooked, tap the bottom: if it is cooked it will sound hollow. Serve freshly baked, cut into thick slices and smeared with butter and jam. Spotted Dick is also really good eaten with cheese.
- This recipe was provided by professional chefs and has been scaled down from a bulk recipe provided by a restaurant. The FN chefs have not tested this recipe, in the proportions indicated, and therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.
- Note: an Irish tablespoon is the same quantity as an American tablespoon plus a teaspoon.

- Put all dried ingredients in to a large bowl, stir though with a fork until combined.
- Add all remaining ingredients to form a sticky dough. (Any milk works in this recipe, we have been using long life semi-skimmed).
- Grease a pudding basin with butter, then place the dough in to the basin. It should leave an inch spare at the top of the dish, to allow it to grow. Cover with greased foil, with a fold in to allow the pudding to swell.
- In a deep pan place a saucer/ramekin at the bottom, then fill with water. Place the pudding in the pan on top of the saucer/ramekin. This prevents direct heat, and potential burning of the base of the pudding. The water should come half way up the pudding basin. Pop a lid on, and allow it to steam for 90 minutes.
- Remover from the pan, remove foil and let it sit for 10 minutes. You may want to run a knife around the edge, but if greased properly it should turn out beautifully.
- Serve with fresh custard, Enjoy!

- Place a steamer rack inside a large stock pot. Add enough water so that when placed on the steamer rack, the pudding mold will be about ¾ of the way submerged. Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil.
- Grease the pudding mold well with the softened butter. Add 2 tablespoons of flour and turn the mold to coat evenly. Cut out a 6-inch (12 cm) round of parchment paper and grease with butter.
- Grate the frozen butter on the large holes of a box grater into a large bowl.
- Add the remaining 3¾ cups (465 G) flour, the salt, and baking powder. Mix with a fork until evenly distributed.
- Add the sugar, raisins, currants, and lemon zest. Stir to combine.
- Add the milk and eggs. Stir with a rubber spatula until the batter comes together and there are no dry spots remaining, being careful not to overmix.
- Transfer to the batter to the prepared pudding mold and smooth the top. Place the parchment round over the batter, greased side down. Secure the lid to the mold.
- Carefully lower the pudding mold into the steam bath. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pot and steam for 80-90 minutes, until the internal temperature of the pudding is at least 180°F (80°C). Add more water as needed to maintain the level.
- While the pudding steams, make the crème anglaise: Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl, filling about halfway.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and ¼ cup (50 G) sugar. Set aside.
- In a small saucepan, combine the milk, heavy cream, remaining ¼ cup (50 G) of sugar, the salt, and the vanilla bean (if using vanilla extract, stir into the cooled crème anglaise). Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until beginning to steam. Remove the pan from the heat.
- Ladle ½ cup (120 ML) of the milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture and whisk well. This will temper the eggs so they do not curdle when added back to the pot. Pour the egg yolk mixture back into the pot with the remaining milk mixture.
- Return the saucepan to medium heat and cook, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon to ensure the egg yolks don't cook on the bottom of the pot, for about 5 minutes, until the custard coats the back of the spoon.
- Set a strainer inside a medium bowl, then set the bowl in the ice bath, making sure the water doesn't come over the sides. Strain the crème anglaise into the bowl. Whisk until cool, about 5 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Once the pudding has cooked through, carefully remove it from the steam rack and let sit for 15 minutes on a cooling rack. Uncover the mold and remove the parchment round. Run a knife around the edge of the pudding to loosen. Carefully flip onto a serving platter.
- Slice and serve the spotted dick warm with the crème anglaise alongside.

SPOTTED DICK WITH BRANDIED CURRANTS
Whether you call it spotted dick, spotted dog, or spotted Richard, this steamed currant pudding is one of the most beloved British desserts. Martha plumps the "spots" of dried fruit with brandy for an extra pop of flavor.

Number Of Ingredients 16
- Creme Anglaise:In a medium saucepan, bring milk, cream, and vanilla seeds and pod to a simmer over medium heat.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and salt. While whisking, slowly add about half the hot milk mixture to temper, then return to saucepan with remaining milk mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon, 6 to 8 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing with a flexible spatula to extract as much liquid as possible; discard solids. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
- Pudding:In a small saucepan, heat currants and brandy until warm; let stand at room temperature until most of the brandy has been absorbed, 30 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, set a round wire rack in bottom of a large stockpot. Set a 2 1/2-quart ovenproof bowl on rack. Fill pot with enough water to come about three-quarters of the way up sides of bowl. Remove bowl; dry, butter inside, and set aside. Cover pot and bring to a boil.
- Butter a 10-inch parchment round; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in cold butter until pieces are no larger than small peas. Stir in eggs, cream, lemon zest and juice, and currant-brandy mixture until combined.
- Transfer batter to prepared bowl. Place parchment round, buttered-side down, over bowl and top with foil to seal. Fold a long piece of foil into thirds and center bowl on foil. Pull ends of foil to top edge of bowl and carefully lower pudding into boiling water. Fold ends of foil down into pot and cover pot. Return to a boil, then reduce to a simmer; steam until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of pudding registers 180 degrees, about 1 hour 15 minutes, occasionally adding boiling water to maintain level, if necessary.
- Using foil sling, transfer pudding to a wire rack. Let cool 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge of bowl to loosen; invert pudding onto a serving plate. Serve warm with creme anglaise.
