My granny's clootie dumpling brought into the 21st century is no longer hours on end cooking, but just ten minutes in microwave! She makes it every year on Hogmanay.

Altered ingredient amounts. 2 oz less water, and put in 2 oz brandy - 19 Apr 2010
Bit too stodgy and not similar to 'real' clootie. - 30 Sep 2012
