Here is a traditional, warm, comforting pudding which is perfect for the cold winter days.
12oz plain flour
Put all dry ingredients into a bowl and stir thoroughly.
Add milk and bring ingredients together to make a firm dough.
Grease a baking sheet, then pat dough into a thick sausage shape ensuring it stays in the centre of baking sheet.
Roll up the dough firmly in the baking sheet. Tie the ends with string so it resembles a Christmas Cracker.
Place a steamer over a large pan of boiling water. Place the Spotted Dick dough into the steamer ensuring it doesn’t touch any water at all. Cover with a lid and steam for one hour.
Slice thickly to serve along with custard.
