Steaming, light fluffy golden balls, covered with a thick golden caramely sauce!!!! With a dollop of cream or ice cream!! YUM Golden Syrup Dumplings have been a family favourite through many generations of Australian families. This simple economic recipe provided a tasty dessert for many families. I have found copies of the recipe Australian newspapers dating back as far as the late 1890’s.
Golden Syrup which is a by-product of sugar has been a favourite in the Australian Kitchen for many years. With a little research on Trove, I found recipes dating back to the end of the 1800's. In a previous Friday Recipe blog, I wrote about Anzac Biscuits, and the importance of golden syrup for this recipe. Again, the sticky sweetness of Golden syrup is the vital ingredient of our golden syrup dumplings.
