Golden syrup dumplings recipe
Egg free, Nut free
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 50g unsalted butter
- ½ cup milk
- Pinch salt
- 1 ¼ cups water
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
- Juice of one lemon
In a medium saucepan add water, sugar, golden syrup and lemon juice.
Stir and bring to the boil.
Place flour and salt into a medium bowl and rub in cold butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add milk and using a fork, gently cut through to form dough.
Gently roll the dough, a tablespoon at a time, into a ball and gently drop them into the boiling syrup.
Place a lid on top of the saucepan of syrup and dumplings and turn down temperature to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes. Turn the heat off sit for 3-4 minutes before serving.
- The dumplings are like scones- you need a very gentle hand for a fluffy texture, however if done right they are divine, especially with thickened cream poured on top.
