Whoever invented these I hope they got a Nobel Peace Prize or something equally prestigious because quite honestly these dumplings could end wars. It's all too easy to make and one of those things that when you first put it in your mouth, your eyes close and you are taken away to somewhere blissful, warm and lovely.
So whilst you're snuggling in this weekend, give these a whirl, if it be for the first (and definitely not the last) time or a return to an old friend. Enjoy!
I have adapted the recipe from One-pot cooking by Super Food Ideas.
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
50 g cold butter
1/3 cup golden syrup
1/3 cup milk
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup golden syrup
2 tb lemon juice
In a small bowl mix the milk and golden syrup together.
In a food processor add flour, butter and blitz until all the butter is well combined into the flour - it should resemble wet sand. gradually add the milk and golden syrup to the flour and whizz until it becomes a dough.
Remove dough from food processor and roll into balls about the size of a ping-pong ball.
In a saucepan add all ingredients together ad bring to a steady boil....
Add the dumplings, giving enough room for them to expand about 20% and cook for 15-20 minutes. I did mine in 2 batches in a 20cm saucepan - you may like to do it all at once in larger saucepan or frypan.
The sauce will thicken into a syrup during cooking time.
Serve with icecream or cream, sprinkle with cinnamon if you like... I just like them plain.
