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.
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.
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.
