There once was a fellow named Mick
Whose tackle had never been sick
Till he put it somewhere
Many others had dared
Now Mick has a fine spotted... pudding.

Hey, we do what we must to satisfy the censors!

Theo.

British food is often poorly regarded by comparison to the cuisine of our European neighbours: France, Italy, Germany and Spain. Yet in some areas Britain truly leads the world - where would we be without the sandwich, for example?

Another area of British culinary pre-eminence is the steamed pudding, amongst which the Spotted Dick is king. As a pudding-fan, I am deeply saddened that several, rather puerile, reviewers find this name mildly amusing. I doubt they would stoop to such pathetic attempts at humour if they had bothered to taste it first.

Take my word for it: nothing tastes better than a mouthful of dick, especially if it comes with a load of hot custard.

Not a pudding by American standards. But then again, the name itself is somewhat obscene by American standards. I found this treat very very sweet, and it has been a long long time since I have seen bread in a can. It tasted much better heating in the microwave and then pouring some cream or half and half on top.

I give this out as a gift for Christmas and birthdays, and almost everyone loves it!!! But don't give it to anyone at work or where there is an HR department - I learned the hard way.

Don't just giggle at the can- open it and eat it!
There is nothing more wonderful than Spotted Dick with lashings of custard and a good cup of strong tea with friends. YUM! I keep it in the cupboard and am ready for friends and tea at a moment's notice. This is a rich sponge cake with currents and savory rich tones of brown sugar. The chocolate and sticky Toffee and Treacle are all good too - when you can get them.

I know the name seems a bit naughty--it just adds to the fun of offering some cultural engagement to our wonderful world. I do slip it into gifts and offer to bring dessert to friends. BUT I also love this line of products for the QUALITY!

There are at least two known breeds of Spotted Dick (or Spotted Dog, as it was once called). The one that was a staple of my childhood (English working class) diet is a steamed suet pudding. It is made from suet, flour, sugar, currants and raisins, and is usually served with treacle.

The Heinz canned version is a very different animal, a member of the sponge pudding race, containing no suet. It is nice enough, and is especially good with English-style custard. It is tasty, filling and easy to prepare, and its name makes it great fun.

But if you are a fan of the Aubrey/Maturin stories and want to eat like them, be warned that this is not the real thing. The genuine Spotted Dick (or Dog), described in O'Brian's books, is the glorious suet pudding of my youth.

The News is Out! Now, Aubrey/Maturin fans, you can experience, at your dining table, the relish with which our beloved heroes gobbled their chow while sailing into a 50-knot tempest at Cape Horn with a French corsair or two hot on their stern! Don't forget to put a Boccherini CD on while the delectable sponge pudding is steaming in your nautical microwave.

With British food's reputation for tasting like recycled garbage, and a dubious name at best, Spotted Dick sounds more like leftovers from the Saw movies than anything edible. Nonetheless, I gave some to my girlfriend...and she also ate Spotted Dick.

This soggy bread in a can is delightful. Straying from the typical rubbage on British plates, the injection of flavor from Spotted Dick is a welcome taste. A sweet treat with hints of cinnamon, this is perfect for a party filled with Dick hungry guests.

At ten ounces, each can is roughly four servings based upon the nutritional facts. That's roughly 1000 calories with about 360 of them fat calories for a total of 40 grams of fat. To say that this Dick is fat would be an understatement. With trace amounts of calcium and iron - or so the rumors go - there are some healthy benefits to this charming confection.

Highly recommended.

I love to keep some of this in my cupboard because first of all, my family loves it and secondly, it gets a giggle each time I show anyone. I grew up with this dessert in the UK and thought nothing of the name till I moved to the USA....makes me giggle now too....ha ha
