RECIPE: Golden Syrup Dumplings

bunksOctober 13, 2007

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?

Serves 4-6

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.

What's SR flour? Is that 3/4 cup caster sugar? I brought golden syrup back from London so this will be something I'll try. I can't think of an herb to go with this since it's sweet.
