Winter Warmer (Warning: this is not at all ‘healthy’!)


Here is a recipe that is guaranteed to delight your family, just as it has delighted countless families since the recipe first came to light, way back when.

Golden Syrup Dumplings (Serves 4)

Ingredients for the syrup
1 cup water
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp butter

Ingredients for the dumplings
1/2 cup Self Raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup Tandaco Suet mix
Up to ¼ cup cold water

For the syrup: Boil all the ingredients in a medium size saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Turn the syrup down to a low heat right before adding the dumplings.

For the dumplings: Sift the flour and salt together. Add the suet mix to the bowl. Using a dinner knife to stir add a little bit of water and stir it through. Continue adding water until the dough comes together into a loose ball. Lightly press the dough with all the bits and then wrap the dough in plastic wrap and put it into the fridge for 15 mins. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 pieces. Lightly shape the pieces into balls and gently drop them into the simmering syrup. Simmer gently for 15-20 mins until they are light and fluffy.

Serve with cream and ice-cream.
