Figgy 'obbin



  • 8oz Suet

  • 1lb Flour

  • 1tsp Salt

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • raisins

  • Milk

  • Sugar




Mix together the suet, flour, salt and baking powder. Add water gradually, to form a dry elastic dough. Knead lightly, then roll out to about 1/2" thick. Sprinkle on two handfuls of raisins, roll them in lightly with a rolling pin. Fold up, like a jam suet pudding, sealing the ends. Criss-cross the top with a knife, brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes. Serve hot.

'This is a traditional Cornish recipe. The "figs" refer to the Cornish common name for raisins.'
