  • Oh! Hello.

  • Today I'm making one of the simplest recipes  I know. Spotted Dick or Plum Bolster. It's  

  • ideal for the Service Hall and very  popular for the nursery and at schools.  

  • Well, it is very cheap to makeFor this recipe you will need:

  • Flour.

  • Suet.

  • Currants.

  • Sugar.

  • Cinnamon.

  • Egg.

  • And milk.

  • First I'm going to mix the flour, the  currants, the sugar and the suet together.

  • Everybody loves this pudding and so it has  lots of different names. Plum Bolster, well  

  • plum because it has dried fruit in it, and bolster  as I suppose it looks like a bolster on your bed.  

  • Current Pudding and Spotted Dick  which really means spotted dough.

  • Now I'm going to add a little cinnamon.

  • And i'm going to whisk an  egg into half of the milk.

  • The dough doesn't want to be too sticky soshall add the rest of the milk a little at a time.

  • Now that the dough is firm but not too sticky  I'm just going to knead it a little more.

  • And it's ready to be wrapped in  a cloth. My cloth is already damp  

  • so I just need to sprinkle it with a little flour.

  • And make a bolster shape with the dough.

  • You must make sure that you  wrap it up really tightly.

  • And now it's ready for boiling.

  • Now that's been at a rolling boil for  just over two hours so it should be ready.

  • Now I need to unwrap it.

  • For the Servants Hall, I'm going to  serve it with a very thick custard.

  • There we are. Spotted dick.

Oh! Hello.
