"Americans used to say where there's a will, there's a way. Nowadays, it's where there's a pill, there's a way out." - - Burnt Toast

For a friend across the great pond

I remember learning of this unusually-named culinary classic while in school and although there are many wonderful canned convenience products on our modern store shelves, this ain't one of them. And it's a terrible insult to the original recipe.

Mrs. Heinz? Stick to making catsup, ok?

And anyone caught microwaving Spotted Dick should have their hand cut off and shoved up the ol' root canal.  Microwaves are for reheating coffee and popping popcorn.  Dammit, don't even get me started about the awful microwave.

Actually, the great contributions we have added to dessert cuisine are

(a) Apple Crumble (usually Apple but other fruit such as Plums), and
(b) Rhubarb and Custard, and
(c) Bread and Butter Pudding and finally ...
(d) Sticky Toffee Pudding.

This last is very popular with Americans. Also Spotted Dick can be made easily enough.

I have linked to recipies for the more adventurous amongst you.
