Spotted dick (also known as "spotted dog" or "railway cake") is a British pudding, traditionally made with suet and dried fruit (usually currants and/or raisins) and often served with custard.Non-traditional variants include recipes that replace suet with other fats (such as butter), or that include eggs to make something similar to a sponge pudding or cake. Spotted Dick is not a pudding for the faint-hearted or those on a diet as it is made from suet, flour and dried fruit and is high in calories. It is, however, the perfect pudding for a treat on a cold winter's day. And, a little now and again is OK.4/5(30).

The latter half of the phrase was a nineteenth-century British word for plain pudding; the spots are typically raisins, but we used dried currants. (The dessert also goes by spotted dog.) In this recipe, the time-honored suet (beef fat) is swapped for butter. Vanilla-specked creme anglaise is on top.
