A suet pudding made with currants or raisins (NSOED). The name is thought to come from a corruption of the word “pudding”.


Spotted dick: a long pudding, or dick, spotted with currants. When you've said that, you've said it all. I mean, if people are going to laugh about something like this, we'd never get through a mealtime. - from WEB LINKNanny Ogg's Cookbook by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs, Tina Hannan, and Paul Kidby, Corgi edition © 2001 All rights reserved
