Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is from Malcolm Robertson's Scottish grandmother. She would make this pudding at Christmas and hide little toys in it (like a plastic baby). The one to get it was suppose to be the next to have a baby. If there was a wedding ring, that person was the next to get married and so on.
