English Mug

Found these great mugs at Spitalfields Market.
How many of you know about the pudding called Spotted Dick? A steamed suet concoction with currants, generally served with custard. Seems to have originated around 1850.
Think I'll opt for a fairy cake.

These are fantastic mugs! I love mugs in general and these are super fun. Fairy Cakes, Spitted Dick, Full English Breakfast and Fish N Chips... who wouldn't love them?

I thought Spotted Dick was something one went to the doctor for. I'd try it regardless. And bring these mugs to Canada! They'd be a great addition to any coffee counter :)

I love London and those mugs are typical of its unique culture.
