Golden syrup dumplings
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 8
Golden syrup dumplings are an indulgent Australian speciality - perfect served with custard
- STEP 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.
- STEP 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.
- STEP 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.
