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.
The quantities in this recipe are out. I used 2 eggs and a bit more milk to make the dough into a better texture. - 05 Dec 2012
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
This is a great recipe! Just like you get in Scotland. Service with cream, custard or your favourite sauce. I've tried brown sugar, lemon, rum, whisky. All are great! - 10 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
