Ever have spotted dick? I bought this can of Heinz Spotted Dick at my local grocery for about $6. Spotted dick is a British dessert "pudding" traditionally made from suet, or mutton fat–I don't know why it's called a pudding–seems more like a cake to me. The suet is combined with baking soda, flour, molasses, corn syrup, nutmeg, and such. Raisins, currants, or even plums may be added (or other dried fruit) –the fruit makes the "spots" in spotted dick. The dough is either steamed or boiled, and usually served with a custard sauce–instead of a custard sauce, I whipped up a quick dessert topping with cream cheese. All in all it was fine– cake in a can, basically –and I rarely have a problem with cake.
