Golden Syrup Dumplings

Maggie Beer's Golden Syrup Dumplings are her mother's family recipe, and are such a simple dessert made with ingredients in everyone's pantry.

Step 1: Sift self raising flour into a bowl and add a pinch of salt.

Step 2: Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs, add the whisked egg and stir to combine.

Step 3: Gently add the milk and mix till the dough just comes together and resembles a scone mix (do not over work the dough). Set aside.

Step 4: Combine all sauce ingredients into a large fry pan. Bring to the boil to amalgamate before reducing heat to a gentle simmer.

Step 5: Flour your hands and roll the dough into the size of a twenty cent piece. Place the balls onto a tray lined with baking paper.

Step 6: Slip the balls off the baking paper all together into the syrup. Cover the fry pan with foil to form a tight seal and cover with the lid. Cook for about 10 minutes before turning over to cook for another 10 minutes on the other side.

Step 7: Remove with a slotted spoon and serve with the remaining sauce and a jug of runny cream.
