My Mums Spottier Dick

This is a proper "blokes" pudding — loads of custard, a little warmed syrup over the top and even some cream. Superb!

Ingredients
  • 4 ounces (115 grams) suet
  • 4 1/2 ounces (120 grams) dried apricots, chopped
  • 8 ounces (240 grams) raisins or sultanas
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 4 1/2 ounces (120 grams) plain flour
  • 4 1/2 ounces (120 grams) sugar
  • 4 1/2 ounces (120 grams) bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger (or to taste)
  • Pinch grated nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 pint (140 milliliters) milk
Directions

Grease a 3-pint (1 liter) pudding basin. Mix all the ingredients together, except the egg and milk. Add the beaten egg and milk and mix well. (I do this in a mixer but you can do it by hand, no problem.)

Put the mixture in the basin, cover with tin foil or a cloth, and put the basin in a pan with water half-way up the sides of the basin. Bring the water to a boil, put on a tight-fitting lid, and simmer for 3 hours, remembering to top up with (add more) boiling water now and then.
