1 cup self-raising flour
1 dessertspoon butter
1 egg
1 pinch salt
a little milk

2 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 dessertspoons butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup

Sift flour and salt into basin. Rub in butter. Beat egg and add to flour to make a dry dough. Roll dough into small dumplings (size of a small walnut) between your hands. Place all ingredients for syrup into 4-pint saucepan, and heat until boiling. Add dumplings all at once. Cook gently 15-20 minutes (put them on as you serve the first course of your meal). Serve with vanilla ice-cream and cream.

    I used to make these when the children were young and money was tight, and everyone loved them. If I had a lemon available I would add the grated rind and juice to the syrup mix too. I must try it again and see what my grandkids think of it - that's the only times I make desserts nowadays!

    I make them for my students from all different countries who HOMESTAY with me. They all love them. Maybe a bit sweet for the Asian taste but they are happy to eat them in smaller amounts than I serve myself. Yummy!
