Dolly pudding

The British call this type of dessert Spotted Dick. Is it just me, or does that sound a tad obscene?

Winter came to Canberra this week. Brrrrr! So here's a fabulously easy and yummy pudding for anyone who needs a cosy winter warmer ...

1 cup flour
1 cup dried fruit (such as sultanas or currants)
0.5 cup sugar
0.5 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
0.5 cup boiling water

Melt the baking soda and butter in the water. Mix in all other ingredients. Wrap dough in a cloth, tie top with room to swell. Place the bundle in a saucepan of boiling water (you may want to put a small plate in the bottom of the saucepan to prevent sticking) and boil for one hour, topping up the water in the saucepan as it evaporates. Serve with whipped cream.
