Heh, thanks D. What a hoot. See my spotted dick post next up for more on this. Hey, now, this recipe you give here talks about both a rolled up sausage shape and a bowl shape. Huh. It's very confuzzling.


"The Oxford Companion to Food comments that, strictly speaking, "spotted dick" is made by taking a flat sheet, spreading sugar and raisins on it, then rolling it up. A similar dessert is "spotted dog," a plain cylinder of suet paste with the raisins and currants and sugar stuck into it, so that the spots are visible on the outside. Both spotted dick and spotted dog were traditionally boiled (or even steamed) in a cloth, but nowadays they are usually baked."

And a recipe here:

You wanna submit it to The Carnival of Recipes or shall I?
