Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the suet, currants, sugar, lemon and orange zest.

  • STEP 2

    Pour in 150ml milk and mix to a firm but moist dough, adding the extra milk if necessary.

  • STEP 3

    Shape into a fat roll about 20cm long. Place on a large rectangle of baking parchment. Wrap loosely to allow for the pudding to rise and tie the ends with string like a Christmas cracker.

  • STEP 4

    Place a steamer over a large pan of boiling water, add the pudding to the steamer, cover and steam for 1½ hours. Top up the pan with water from time to time.

  • STEP 5

    Remove from the steamer and allow to cool slightly before unwrapping. Serve sliced with custard.
