Never made a spotted dick before, and had a theme party where this fit in. People absolutely inhaled this. I took it out of the steamer, plated it, doused it with warm run, ignited, set it up on the counter, and 60 seconds later the platter was clean. I am NOT exagerating. I couldn't believe how popular it was...and it is so simple!!!!

Plus everyone had such fun time "discussing" it. LOL

Spotted Dick

3 cups flour
2 cups beef suet (I used pasture-grazed organic)
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup cream
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup raisins.

Pulse flour and suet in food processor, pour into bowl. Add remaining ingredients, combine. This will be a stiff ugly mess. Mold it into a cannon ball. Place in a buttered pudding basin or stainless bowl. Cover with buttered wax paper, then seal with foil. Steam for 3 hours.

Unmold, douse with hot cognac or rum, ignite. Serve with custard sauce on the side.

People are still calling me about this. That's how amazingly different it danced on the tastebuds. The ugly hard cannonball transforms into a fluffy lucious pudding.
