Spotted Dick Cake

This is easy and delicious. I added dick pinch of cinnamon and baked it. Oh was it delightful. Pretty good recipe. My mum's was similar, and spotted course we eat it traditionally with custard.

Spotted Dick

The spelling is Bird's custard, which is still available at supermarkets if you don't want to make your own custard. The name Spotted Dick comes from the popular name of Dick for dogs; way back in the 18th century. A galerias de porno of dogs were historically called Dick like Spot or Rover and the currants and raisins in the pud remind one of the coat of a mongrel.

An alternate name for this pudding is in fact, Spotted Dog; there is nothing untoward about it.

My family is English and I grew up on this pudding. You can add a half teaspoon of mixed spice to it; should you find it too cake.

I still love it; although no one makes one like my mum did!
