Definition: Traditionally a pudding is a cooked, substantial starch or dairy based sweet dish, as in a Spotted Dick Pudding which contains flour and suet, a Traditional Christmas Pudding or a Rice Pudding. A pudding is usually considered a more homely, rustic or traditional recipe.

To make it a little more confusing though, pudding is not always sweet. British food is awash with savory puddings - Yorkshire Pudding, served with Roast Beef in a traditional Sunday Lunch, Black Pudding or a winter-warming Steak and Kidney Pudding.
Also Known As: Afters, Sweet, Pud
