  • 100g/4oz currants
  • 100g/4oz suet, grated
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 175ml/6fl oz milk


  • Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and ginger into a large bowl. Add
    the breadcrumbs, sultanas, currants, suet and lemon zest. Mix with a
    wooden spoon.
  • Combine the egg and milk, add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
    Add a little more milk if necessary, then set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Lay a sheet of baking paper on a work surface, and form the mixture
    into a roll shape about 20cm/8in long. Roll up the pudding in the paper
    and fold up the ends – but do not wrap too tightly. Wrap in a tea towel,
    put it in the top of a steamer, cover and steam for 11⁄2 hours. Do not let
    the pudding boil dry – replenish with boiling water if necessary as the
    pudding cooks.
