Golden Syrup Dumplings




225 g Bakers' Magic Gluten free flour

1 1/2 tsp Baking powder

1 Egg

50 g Milk

50 g Golden syrup

100 g Butter


500 g Water

100 g Light brown or raw sugar

150 g Butter

200 g Golden syrup

Serves 8

(My son would dispute this serving size)


Put all the sauce ingredients into a wide saucepan. I use a 24 cm diameter stainless steel one.

Place on top of a cooktop on a medium - low heat.

Let it simmer until you are ready to put in the dumplings.

Making the dough


Place all ingredients into the TM bowl.

Mix for 7 secs on speed 4.

Check that the ingredients are all mixed in. If not scrape down the sides.

Mix for another 7 secs on speed 4.

Take dough out of the TM bowl.

By Hand

Sift together the Bakers' Magic Gluten free flour & baking powder.

To make it easier to mix by hand ensure the milk, butter & egg are at room temperature.

Put all ingredients into a bowl.

Using a wooden spoon or your hands combine the ingredients until a uniform dough forms.

Preparing the dumplings

Put the dough on a clean work surface.

Roll it into a sausage shape.

Using a sharp knife cut the sausage into 16 ~ equal portions.

Take one portion cut it in half. Taking one half roll it into a ball between the palms of your hand. Do the same with the other half. Place both on a plate/cutting board.

Repeat for the rest of the dough portions. 

Cooking the dumplings

Check the sauce - ensure the butter is completely melted before adding the dumplings.

Turn the heat up so that the sauce is rapidly boiling.

Carefully add the dumplings to the boiling sauce.

Cook for 4 mins. 

Serve immediately with cream and/or ice-cream.
