    This is what I call a Granny classic that is so moist and sticky that it doesn’t need any butter – although please feel free to smear a little on if you wish! It is best made a day or two in advance and it keeps moreishly moist for over a week. When I used to cook in shooting lodges, it was perfect for the guests and stalkers to take as their ‘piece’ for the hill and it is a grand addition to a dram with all the fictional backdrop of a warm fire, leather chair and a black lab at your feet.
