One of the favorites, and one will will usually raise a smile in the classic British pudding of Spotted Dick - the spotted part refers to the raisins and currants in the dough and the word dick' is a colloquial word for pudding. It is also sometimes referred to as Spotted Dog for those of a more delicate constitution.
