As my sons have left home they have all requested recipes for such things as Tuna Mournay and Golden Syrup dumplings. In fact recently my youngest son was telling a friend that he wanted her to make golden syrup dumplings. She asked him for the recipe, so he went as usual to the internet, and found, much to his surprise, that the recipe was one which I had submitted to In Mama’s Kitchen. So here it is the family’s favourite and very easy dessert.

? 1 cup self-raising flour
? 1 egg
? 1 teaspoon butter
? 1-2 tablespoon milk
? 1 cup water
? 1/2 cup sugar
? 2 tablespoons Golden syrup or honey
? 1 tablespoon butter

Sift flour into a bowl. and rub in the butter until it is like breadcrumbs. Beat the egg and milk together, and carefully mix with the flour to make a soft dough. Do not over-mix as this will make the dumplings tough.

Place the water, sugar, butter and golden syrup into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.

Drop in teaspoonfuls of the dough, cover with a lid and simmer over a moderate heat for about 12 minutes or so until cooked. Serve on a shallow plate and drizzle the golden sauce over the top, accompanied by custard, cream or icecream. My husband’s favourite is hot, runny custard.
Serves 4-6 people
