Roly-Poly pudding

A steamed suet pudding containing currants, sultanas, jam, treacle or mincemeat made in a "roly-poly" shape. This is achieved by rolling a suet crust dough in muslin, or inserting it into a specially-shaped cylindrical mould. Spotted Dick and Jam/Treacle Roly-Poly"s are popular versions. The name "dick" probably originates from an old colloquial name for dough. See 'Spotted Dog'
