This is Grandma Davis’ recipe for Spotty Dog, an old English/Welsh dessert. This is massive in calories, so tread lightly. I used to love this as a youth, but haven’t had it in decades. I’m not sure I’d still like it.
I believe that the actual name for this dish is Spotted Dick, but knowing my mom (Betty Heiser Davis) and her mom (Harriett French Heiser) they changed the name to Spotty Dog to avoid any joking around.
By the way – you can buy canned Spotted Dick if you want to try this before making it. I’m sure a sauce recipe can also be found online.
