Golden Syrup Dumplings

A white plate with 2 golden syrup dumplings with sauce and cream.

I was asked for a good recipe for Golden Syrup Dumplings (for the Thermomix), and remembered this one from the book that so many Aussies have.

I had a look on my bookshelf and realised it must still be in one of the boxes from doing our renovations. Got to get them all out of the garage… Anyway, I took a look at my Bake Club files, because I remembered doing them from time to time. My notes said we altered the recipe just a bit, as we felt the sweetness didn’t let the golden syrup shine through enough, and I think the original recipe was always cooked on the stovetop. Correct me if I’m wrong anyone. 😉

I’ve always popped them in the oven because who doesn’t like the golden brown caramelised bits you get from baking. So here goes, this is what we did with this wonderful Aussie recipe last year.

  • Weigh the remainder of the dumpling ingredients and mix for 6 seconds/speed 4, just enough to combine to form a dough. Divide into eight small balls around 36g each and set aside in the buttered ovenproof pot or dish.

For the syrup:

  • Weigh all the ingredients into the TM bowl and place the simmering basket on top of the lid, set to 10 min/100°c/speed 2.
  • Pour the syrup over the dough balls (making sure you cover them all) and then cover the baking dish with a baking paper-lined foil cap. Bake for 20 mins then remove the lid and bake until golden around 15 minutes.

If you like something a little sweet, then there’s Churros. I like mine crunchie on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside.  These are just that.  Try these Churros, they’re easy to make and so delicious.
