About this recipe: This is a traditional Scottish dish. Made for after Christmas dinner, the remainder was kept for Hogmanay. In years gone by it was wrapped in cloth and steamed in a pot. The old six penny was wrapped in wax paper and cooked into the dumpling mixture, where it was good luck to find one in your slice of the dumpling. This recipe is made in the microwave and is much quicker and still has the same tasteful flavour. You will need 1 pot, 2 pint pudding bowl, cling film.
