PS We just call it 'pudding'. Your pud & our pud (and pud means something entirely different over here, btw) are not alike.
But people who eat Spotted Dick can't really complain if I tease them about their 'pud'.
Sorryto be pedantic, but I have a sneaking suspician that like I, you might prefer being corrected than living your life spelling 'blancmange' incorrectly.
OT: blancmange / n.
a sweet, opaque, gelatinous dessert made with flavoured cornflower and milk. Mmm...I used to love it as a little boy.
Pudding: yet another example of "two nations divided by a common language"!
But then, I think Americans delight in corrupting the English
We use the term 'pudding' in a very general sense (unless it's used as in Bread and Butter Pudding, for example). "Hey Mum, what's for pudding?"
Loved your Spotted Dick comment, by the way!
May I sneakingly suspect that you'd like me to correct your spelling of 'suspicion'?
