This month Daring Bakers Challenge was hosted by Esther from The Liliac Kitchen and the challenge was Traditional British Pudding. This was my very first challenge and I was really very excited to see what the challenge was.When I first So it I was really eager to do it but than I started to read recipe I got scared a bit how am I going to do it.I don t even own pudding bowl.Than I calmed my self down I realized that I can do it.
Do you remember Jamie Oliver.Few years back he was really popular here in Croatia.I think his show was on on saturdays and I loved watching him. He is probably the one to blame for my obsession for baking.Anyway I remembered he was making English pudding precisely Spotted Dick.I wanted to try recipe beck than but I just can t remember why I didn t. But I loved the name of the recipe so when I saw that Spotted Dick was an option for this month challenge I decided to go for it.There were only two problems in the recipe;Suet cause I couldn t get hold of it and the raisins because I don t like them.But it was quickly solved; instead of suet I used vegetable fat and instead of raisins I used cranberrys. The recipe was great and there were no problems making the pudding. It was actually easier Than I thought it would be.But to tell you the truth I wasn t all that excited about the result.It was o.k. but I don t think I will be making it again any time soon.

1/4 teaspoon salt

Spotted dick with cranberries that is a brilliant idea and your final pudding is wonderful looking. Well done on this challenge.

Welcome to daring bakers! I too made a spotted dick pudding and wasn't too impressed with the flavor, it was a bit bland. Nice job on the challenge!OdgovoriIzbriši
