Traditional Scottish Recipes
- Macallan`s Whisky Chocolate Pudding

This recipe is from Donald Angus Munro at the restuarant Loop in Glasgow - he was formerly head chef at the famous Skibo Castle. The recipe appeared in "Glasgow on a Plate" (Black and White Publishing Ltd) along with a number of other recipes for the connoisseur. Munro acknowledges that the recipe came from his grandmother`s old traditional Scottish recipes. He just added the Macallan! And of course, you can just make the sauce and add it to one of your own choice of sweets.

Ingredients for the pudding:

110g/ 4 ounces/ one stick margarine
