"spotted dick" name origins

Sue | Sep 24, 2002 02:11 AM

A friend of mine works in a local British-style pub. Every Monday he serves a dessert called "spotted dick". He is frequently asked about the origins of the name. I have searched my many resources for this information and have found only vague answers. Any help out there? Thanks!
p.s. This is a totally legit culinary querey!!
