By popular demand - Golden Syrup Dumplings

(well, one or two of you anyway!!)

Golden Syrup Dumplings
45 grams butter
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup golden syrup
2-1/2 cups water

1-1/2 cups self-raising flour
30 grams butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
approx 1/2 cup milk

Make dumplings first: sift flour into bowl, rub in butter, add golden syrup and enough of the milk (gradually) to mix to a soft dough. Roll tablespoons of dough into ball with floured hands. Should make 10 dumplings

Then: combine butter, sugar, golden syrup and water in large saucepan, stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Place dumplings into saucepan slowly (eg using spoon). Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 mins or until dumplings are well-risen and cooked through. Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream.

Cook as close to serving time as possible.
