...my first clootie dumpling.




(Yes, I was hungry and impatient and took a big slice out before I snapped it. And yes, you're meant to turn it onto a plate as well, but shaddap!)

Top Dumpling Tips:

- 2h30 was about the right time to steam it for, with regular trips to top up the pan. (Bonus Tip: Don't get absorbed in a Warcrack dungeon for too long as inevitable singeing occurs. *facepalm*)

- When you don't have string to tie the muslin, Christmas ribbon works :D

- I substituted soft brown sugar for molasses sugar (available in most supermarkets) and it's *lovely*.

- For the concerned, the suet is vegetarian. It was the only type available anyway :P

So, who wants to come to mine for Burns Night xD
