Golden Syrup Dumplings in microwave


Yum. Golden Syrup Dumplings are really easy in the microwave, perfect for a cold, Melbourne winter night.


1 Cup self raising flour
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of butter
1 beaten egg
1 tablespoon milk

Sift the flour and salt together and rub in the butter using your fingers. Mix in the beaten egg and milk to make a dry dough. Roll the dumplings into balls (this recipe makes about 12). Don’t over-handle the dough or roll the balls too tight, or they will turn out like rocks.


1 Cup white sugar
2 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of golden syrup
1 and a half cups of water

Place all of the syrup ingredients into a large microwave casserole dish and cook on high for 5 minutes, stirring twice.

Add the dumplings and cook with the lid on for 4 minutes on medium. Turn the dumplings over so they are coated in syrup and stand for 5 minutes before serving with cream.
