RECIPE: Golden Syrup Dumplings
I had never tried dumplings before trying this, and thought they might be glue-y. To my delight they were fluffy and soft, and so easy!
Can anyone think of a garnish or herb to go with this?
2 cups S.R flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
150g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
2/3 cup buttermilk
Vanilla ice cream to serve
1 cup water
1/2 cup golden syrup
3/4 caster sugar
50g unsalted butter
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Rub butter in with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs (or in a food processor). Stir in buttermilk, mixing well until a firm dough is formed. Form into 12 ball shapes.
Put sauce ingredients in a heavy based pan over a medium low heat, and stirring, bring to a simmer.
Add dough balls and simmer, covered for 10 mins, or until cooked. Serve immediately with ice-cream.
