  • Summary

    One of the most popular British puddings is spotted dick. The latter half of the phrase was a nineteenth-century British word for plain pudding; the spots are typically raisins, but we used dried currants. (The dessert also goes by spotted dog.) In this recipe, the time-honored suet (beef fat) is swapped for butter. Vanilla-specked creme anglaise is on top.

    Ingredients

    • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more softened for pudding basin and parchment
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 3/4 cup dried currants
    • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1/3 cup whole milk
    • Creme Anglaise (optional), for serving
