Golden Syrup Dumplings

Golden Syrup Dumplings

A Wonderful Winter Treat

I have had this recipe for Golden Syrup Dumplings for over 30 years.  I must confess though, that I have never made them.  This must change! The recipe looks easy enough and I have everything in the cupboard and fridge ready to go. I think it is a job for this weekend. I can imagine having them with my favorite ice-cream in the lounge with the heater turned up and a movie playing. Sounds good, doesn’t it, why don’t you give it a try.
