Roast Dinner Day is celebrated on November 4, so it seems odd to have to wait five days to have your dessert.

Traditional British puddings and desserts are usually warming, comforting and nostalgic for most Britons. Here we feature several classics that are scoffed with relish across the nation.


A crumble is a dish that can be made in a sweet or savoury version, although the sweet version is much more common. A sweet variety usually contains stewed fruit topped with a crumbly mixture of fat, flour, and sugar. Common fruits used are apple, rhubarb and plum.

Spotted Dick

Spotted dick is a traditional British pudding, traditionally made with suet and dried fruit and often served with custard. Spotted refers to the fruit and dick is a regional term for a pudding.

Eton Mess

Eton mess is a traditional English dessert consisting of a mixture of strawberries, meringue, and whipped cream. First mentioned in print in 1893, it is commonly believed to originate from Eton College and is served at the annual cricket match against the pupils of Harrow School.

Eve's Pudding

Eve's pudding, also known as Mother Eve's pudding, is a type of traditional British pudding made from apples baked under a Victoria sponge cake mixture. The name is a reference to the biblical Eve.

Jam Roly-Poly

Jam roly-poly is a traditional British pudding dating back to the early 19th century. It is a flat-rolled suet pudding, which is then spread with jam and rolled up, similar to a Swiss roll, then steamed or baked.

Treacle Sponge 

A treacle sponge pudding is a traditional British dessert dish consisting of a steamed sponge cake with treacle cooked on top of it, sometimes also poured over it and often served with hot custard.


Made with fruit, a thin layer of sponge fingers commonly soaked in sherry or another fortified wine, and custard, the contents of a trifle are highly variable; many varieties exist, some forgoing fruit entirely and instead using other ingredients, such as chocolate, coffee or vanilla.
