Recipe: Spotted Dick

Spotted DickIn Beside Your Heart & Disclosure of the Heart by Mary Whitney, Nicki is introduced to a delicacy that Adam is very familiar with. Hope you enjoy “spotted dick”! 🙂


  • 250 grams self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 125g shredded suet
  • 180g currants
  • 80g caster sugar
  • Finely grated zest 1 lemon
  • Finely grated zest 1 small orange
  • 150ml whole milk, plus 2-3 tbsp
  • Custard, to serve



  1. Put the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the suet, currants, sugar, lemon and orange zest.
  2. Pour in 150ml milk and mix to a firm but moist dough, adding the extra milk if necessary.
  3. 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.
  4. Place a steamer over a large pan of boiling water, add the pudding to the steamer, cover and steam for 1 1/2 hours. Top up the pan with water from time to time.
  5. Remove from the steamer and allow to cool slightly before unwrapping. Serve sliced with custard.
