    Never heard "up the club/duff" in the U.S.

    I agree. Duff pudding is likewise unknown in North America, with one small exception. In Newfoundland there is a popular dessert called figgy duff. I gather it is like bread pudding with raisins.

    You will hear up the duff in the UK, but I am more familiar with in the club than up the club there.
