Golden Syrup Dumplings
2 cups self-raising flour
45 g. butter
2 cups water
2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup*
1/3 cup sugar
30 g. butter
Sift flour and salt together, rub in butter. Beat eggs slightly. Stir in with knife. Add enough milk to make a soft dough, then divide into 12. Roll into balls.
In large saucepan, heat the water with sugar and Golden Syrup. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Add butter, bring to the boil. Add dumplings. Cover and boil gently for 20 minutes without lifting the lid. Serve immediately with little sauce spooned over. Serve with custard or cream.
(*)Australian Tablespoons are equivalent to 4 teaspoons or 20 mls. You will need 1 extra teaspoon for each Tablespoon, to get the recipe correct.
