    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    pudding

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      one large square of cotton or linen cloth is needed as a pudding cloth.
    2. 2
      Mix all the ingredients together with enough milk to make a “not too wet mixture”.
    3. 3
      Drop linen cloth in boiling water, using tongs remove and wring out excess moisture.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle the cloth with flour.
    5. 5
      Put the dumpling mixture into the centre of the cloth and tie securely with twine.
    6. 6
      Don’t leave too much room in the cloth or the dumpling will split.
    7. 7
      Place the dumpling into a large saucepan of boiling water and simmer for 3 hours.
    8. 8
      Make sure the water level is topped up with more hot water to about half way up the side.
    9. 9
      The dumpling should be covered with water.
    10. 10
      It is a good idea to use a heat-proof plate in the bottom of the pot to keep the dumpling off the pot base.
    11. 11
      When ready, put dumpling on a wooden breadboard and carefully remove cloth.
    12. 12
      Put plate on top and turn over.
    13. 13
      Put in a warm oven for 10 minutes.
    14. 14
      Turn dumpling onto a clean plate and put into oven for a further 10 minutes.
    15. 15
      Note: Double the amount requires four hours' boiling.

      Made this for Virtual Culinary Cruise:British Isles and Ireland's Scotland leg. Being a Scot and also a lover of dumpling I was keen to find a recipe close to my Grannies much loved dumpling - often a close held family secret and with many regional variations, this one seemed to fit the bill. I followed the recipe and the only change I made was to put a spoon of treacle in the mix. The result was a delicious dumpling with a lovely skin around it - often the best bit! This will be welcomed by my parents as it is not something we make very often in these health conscious days. Thanks for posting this I really enjoyed making it the directions were detailed and The only thing I would do differently is to add a little more milk and cook for maybe 15 mins less.
