Dave's Dumplings

Golden Syrup Dumplings, recipe from Grandma.

1 cup SR flour
1 Tablespoon butter
little milk
Rub butter into flour and mix enough milk to make a soft dough, like scones.
Boil 1 cup of water (**edited by Dave ** + a little more), 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 tablespoon golden syrup and 3 ozs sugar (3 tablespoons) all together in a large saucepan (when cooking for all of us Dave uses a big heavy fry pan that has a lid). When boiling add spoonfuls of dough into the mixture and cover with a lid and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Serve at once. Make sure the lid is tight as you want all the liquid to stay in the pan.
Dave makes this and once he adds the dough he turns the stove down to its lowest setting. He times this so this stage happens once dinner is served and the dumplings are ready by the time we are finished dinner and ready for dessert. if left too long or there isn't enough syrup the dumplings will be drier rather than fluffy.
Serve with cream or icecream.
