About this recipe: This traditional Scottish boiled pudding is made with suet, currants and sultanas. Perfect Hogmanay fare.
If you don't have a cloot already, try using an old pillowcase, a square of muslin or a large tea towel.
I've been making Clootie Dumpling for my hubby for over 40 years with his mother's recipe - given to her by her Scottish mother-in-law. Then I lost my recipe! I used this one because my husband likes the flour 'skin' formed after cooking, and it turned out just like my old recipe. Very nice! He didn't notice! - 12 Dec 2015
