Suet Pudding

A suet pudding is a boiled, steamed or microwaved pudding made with suet (beef or mutton fat), flour, bread crumbs, raisins, and spices.

Many variations are strongly associated with British cuisine. Recipes vary greatly and can be desserts or savory courses. They are typically boiled or steamed, though some baked variations and recipes adapted for microwave ovens exist.

Suet Pudding

Examples include Spotted dick, Christmas pudding, Treacle pudding, Clootie, Jam Roly-Poly, and many other flavor variations. Savory versions include rabbit, chicken, game, and Steak and kidney pudding.

The Paignton pudding was also a variation of suet pudding.
