My go to recipe for golden syrup dumplings!

These were delicious, might mash banana in the dumpling mixture next time like Shays comment, cos I found them a bit stogy and floury . But the flavour of them was delish and the syrup was to die for

That one is just a heading for the syrup ingredients below it 🙂
