Spotted Dick is one of the classic British desserts. It’s made with flour and suet (a hard fat that surrounds the kidneys of beasts) and contains currants or sultanas. Spotted Dick is absolutely delicious with English Custard / Creme Anglaise. In this recipe video I show you how easy it is to make steamed Spotted Dick Pudding, and also how to make foolproof pouring custard using the sous vide method.

If you don’t have sous vide equipment, here’s a video about the traditional way to make British custard:
