Blanket Sweet Pudding


A long round pudding, made of flour and jam, a type of bolster-pudding.

From WD Parish's 'Dictionary of the Sussex Dialect' (1875) and William Holloway's' A General Dictionary of Provincialisms' of 1839(?); "BLANKET PUDDING A long round pudding made of flour and jam of some kind which is spread over the paste and then rolled into the proper shape, so called from its being wrapped in folds and covering the fruit, as a blanket does a person in bed. It is sometimes called a bolster pudding probably from its shape E. Suss"

The American 'Miss Leslie's New Cookery Book'by Eliza Leslie of 1851 has; "English people call a Jack in a blanket and sometimes a Dog in a blanket. The blanket is supposed to mean the paste the dog is probably the fruit."
