I made this recipe today.As it was just for two of us I halved the quantity of the ingredients & the time it said to cook.No more steaming for hours, from now on I'll use this recipe.My husband & I enjoyed it very much.

Dumpling crumbling help please
by: Margaret McFarlane

I tried this recipe today and found that when cold the dumpling was very difficult to cut - it was crumbling. This is the second time this has happened. Has anyone else had this experience.

I see something called "mied" spice. What is that?

Edited by May
Hi Carol,
I see the error - it should have read 'mixed' spice which I have now corrected. (this is like allspice)

Sounds Delicious!
by: May

Hi James
You beat me to it ..... making a comment that is.
Noit had time to try the recipe, but oh, it doesn't sound too great for the waist line. But it DOES sound easy to make and utterly delicious.

Thanks for sharing it.

I saw this and went straight off to try it.
I didn't have any treacle and added a little chopped lemon peel as an extra.
It is fabulous!
My complaint... this was another habit that my waist just didn't need!!!
Bravo James
