Recipe: Spotted Dick

Spotted dick is an English dessert which consists of raisins and other sweetened filling material wrapped around a roll of dough and then steamed.

6 oz raisins
3 oz brown sugar
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
8 oz flour
4 oz vegetable shortening
2 oz milk

Mix the raisins, sugar, and lemon juice together and set aside. Then blend the flour, milk, and shortening into a ball of dough. Smooth it out into a square on a lightly floured surface. Spread the filling on the dough and roll from one end.

Wrap the roll in a cloth, tie and both ends, and steam for two hours.

It's quite tasty.
