Golden Syrup Dumplings

This recipe is great as a simple dessert or as a dessert for a small gathering. Everyone will love these gooey dumplings and the children made even want to help in the kitchen for this special recipe.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves 4

1 cup self rising flour
1 1/2 oz cold butter, chopped
1 egg
1 Tablespoon Milk
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 oz Butter, extra
2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup (Lyle's is the best)
1/4 cup Lemon Juice

1. Sift the flour into the bowl with a pinch of salt. Using your fingertips, rub the chopped butter into the flour until it resembles fine crumbs. Make a well in the center. Using a flat bladed knife, like a butter knife, stir the combined egg and milk into the flour to form a soft dough.
2. To make the syrup, place 2 cups water in a large pan with the sugar butter, golden syrup and lemon juice. Stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Bring to a boil, then gently drop dessertspoon fulls of the dough into the syrup. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, covered, for 20 minutes, or until knife inserted into dumpling comes out clean. Spoon onto serving plates, drizzle with syrup and serve immediately.
