Haven't Seen One of These in a Long Time..Thankfully

Spotted dick is a traditional British pudding made from suet, or mutton fat. The suet is mixed with other ingredients, such as baking soda, flour, molasses, corn syrup, or nutmeg. This creates a pastry dough, to which raisins or dry fruit are added, hence the dessert's "spots." The dough is traditionally either steamed or boiled, and is often served with a custard sauce. It has been know to be renamed, Spotted Richard, on menus to avoid embarrassment. :OD
