How to Make It

Step 1

Combine milk and bread crumbs in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Combine eggs and sugar in a small mixing bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended. Add egg mixture, jelly, beef suet, and lemon rind and juice to breadcrumb mixture, stirring until well combined.

Step 2

Dredge raisins, currants, citron, and orange peel in 3/4 cup flour; set aside. Dissolve soda in coffee. Combine remaining flour, salt, and spices; add to breadcrumb mixture alternately with coffee mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in dredged fruit mixture.

Step 3

Spoon batter evenly into 4 greased 1-pound coffee cans. Cover top of each can with a damp cotton towel, and tie securely with string. Place cans on a rack in a large stockpot; add boiling water to come halfway up sides of cans. Cover and steam in oven at 350° for 4 hours.

Step 4

Remove cans from stockpot; remove towels to allow steam to escape. Cools lightly. Loosen pudding from sides of each can, and invert onto a serving platter. Slice and serve with sauce.
