DIRECTIONS

  • To make the dumplings: Rub the flour and butter together in a large bowl (a small bowl makes lots of mess on your counter).
  • Add the syrup and enough milk to make a soft dough.
  • Use floured hands to grab cherry sized portions and roll into a ball.
  • Place on a floured plate and cover with cling wrap and pop in the fridge (can be done upto 8 hours ahead of time).
  • For the sauce:
  • In a medium saucepan (I have 4 kids, so my medium is a good size) add the first 3 ingredients, stir and bring to the boil.
  • Carefully drop the dumplings in, a single layer only.
  • Boil uncovered for 7-10 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check for done-ness, they should resemble a scone inside.
  • If over cooked they loose al lightness and go stodgy - so timing is everything! Don't walk away while boiling the dumplings.
  • Serve with either whipped cream and/or ice-cream.
  • Left over sauce makes a great ice-cream topping.
  • Please note - I often make double, due to guests OR a long day with swimming/basketball or other sport events due to 3 sons.
