Method

  1. In a large, wide pan pour in 450ml water, half the butter, sugar and golden syrup and bring to the boil. Turn it down immediately so it is just simmering.
  2. Warm the milk just a little. Meanwhile, in a food processor pulse the flour and the rest of the butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add 2 tbsp golden syrup and the warmed milk and whizz until it comes together.
  3. Bring the liquid back to the boil and drop in dessertspoon-size pieces of the dough, turn the heat down to a simmer again and gently cook for 10 mins, turning gently a few times. You may need to do it in two batches so they don’t all stick together – just scoop out the first lot with a little of the syrup into a baking dish, cover with foil and keep warm in a low oven while you finish the rest.

I made these for myself and my mum, they are amazing! I did under cook some but that is my own fault. This was easy to follow and very quick to do.

I made this for just 2, and although i forgot to ratio the golden syrup down to 25g, it was very tasty! the sauce was like a butterscotch. I also made it dairyfree by using a vegan 'butter' and almond milk. turned out lovely!

I'd never heard of sweet dumplings until one of the kids made this on junior masterchef! After seeing them, we made these and they are so nice, kind of like a sponge pudding but stickier and a bit more dense, really yummy and easy too, we were eating them in less than half an hour! Will be making them again :-)

My favourite childhood pud, but with single cream! Can't wait to try this version. My dad always made them with suet.
