I have a recipe for golden syrup dumplings on Zaar, but I don't think I'll make it again after tasting these dale!! I halved the cinnamon, and 1 banana didn't look enough, 2 was too much, but that's what I used, and then used less milk. The dumplings were moist and really tasted of banana and the toffee sauce was great, and plenty of it.
We made this for dessert tonight and had 2 dumplings each. The rest of the mix is there & I may just have another :) The dumplings tasted a little floury, so next time we have a banana-cakey-pudding-kinda-craving we may just, like Jan, put the rest of that 2nd banana in for good measure. Thanks for sharing, dale! :)
Very nice! Easy to make and tasted great. I did make the mistake of eating too many dumplings and feeling a little queazy though! Will deffinately make again!
