Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Making the dumplings: Use your fingers to mix the butter through the self-raising flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Use a spoon to mix through the milk and golden syrup until it becomes a thick and sticky mixture. 
Size of dumplings: You can make the dumplings as small or large as you like (please note that they will 'fluff up' due to the self-raising flour. I use a tablespoon and place dollops of the mixture into the simmering syrup. 
Golden syrup substitutes: If you can’t buy golden syrup, you can substitute it with honey, maple syrup or corn syrup. 
How to check if your dumplings are ready: You can test if your dumplings are cooked by inserting a skewer into the middle. If it comes out clean, they're ready.
Serving: These are best served immediately after cooking. Pour the sweet syrup over the top of the fluffy dumplings and serve hot with ice-cream or custard.
