Golden Syrup Dumplings

Dating back to the Depression, this Australian family recipe was winter comfort food in harder times...

Syrup: 1 1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon golden syrup, 1 tablespoon butter

Dumplings: Rub 1 tablespoon butter into 1 cup Self Raising Flour. Mix to a soft dough with 1 beaten egg and a little milk. Form dough into about 8 balls and drop into the boiling syrup.

Allow to simmer with lid on the pot for 20 to 30 minutes.

  1. These sound divine...and a great use for the golden syrup I have left over from my last batch of ANZAC biscuits! Thanks for sharing!
