Ever Taste Spotted Dick?

I was watching a video about the British Navy on Somolia pirate patrol. They showed the galley serving Spotted Dick. I looked it up out of culinary curiosity. It appears to be some kind of fruitcake with custard.

I can honestly say that I have never tasted Spotted Dick. What does it taste like?

I hear citrus is good for getting the taste out of your mouth.

Heinz makes a canned version of it. Never tried it, but I think theirs is more like a bread of some sort.

Spotted Dick must be an English thing.

I'm not sure what it's like but I think John Goodman may know, from his days as King Ralph...

With great hesitation i say I have . Had it as part of a brunch fund raiser at a local Irish pub - i think it was a berry covered bread pudding . Actually tasted pretty good lol

Yea, in all seriousness I had many things a lot like it when I lived in the UK as a kid. Everyone's family made it a little differently, but it's the same thing essentially. It's much better without the fruity bits.

Sorry to necro.

Just bought a can of this on a whim. It's kind of like spongy bread pudding. It was actually pretty good with a cup of strong tea.
