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.
