  • Serves

    1¼ Cups self raising flour
    30g soft butter
    ⅓ Cup Chelsea Golden Syrup
    ⅓ Cup milk

    30g butter
    175g Chelsea Dark Cane Sugar or Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    ½ Cup Chelsea Golden Syrup
    1½ Cups water


    Make the sauce by placing all ingredients into a large non-stick frypan or saute pan.
    Stir over a low heat until the Chelsea Dark Cane Sugar (or Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar) has dissolved. Then increase the heat until the mixture boils and turn the heat down to a simmer for one minute.
    Make the dumplings by rubbing the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the Chelsea Golden Syrup and milk and stir until just combined.
    Carefully drop spoonfuls of the dumpling batter into the simmering sauce leaving space for them to expand.
    Cover and cook for approx 20 minutes or until the dumplings are puffed and golden. You will need to turn the dumplings halfway through cooking.
    Serve with ice-cream, vanilla custard or thickened cream.

If the sauce is too sweet just add some salt to balance the sauce out.

Too sweet

Bit sickly sweet felt like id drunk a cup of golden sugar and thats coming from a sweet tooth person. I would recommend halfing the sugar of the sauce.

Easy to make, beautiful dumplings, so light and fluffy! Just like Nana used to make

Easy directions, seems to be boiling away nicely on this Winters evening...

Easy to make - yummy as

Great but WAYYY too sweet. Its sickly :( would only put in half a cup of sugar!

Easy to make tastes great and you can cook it when dinner is cooking. I'm only 12 but this is one of my favorite desserts ever and is so easy.

Very yum, somehow a bit dry though
