Can someone please reply to these questions : 1 WHY DOES IT TASTE DOUGHY TO SOME PEOPLE ??

You might like smaller dumplings perhaps Darlene? πŸ™‚

Made for the first time tonight. Found them a bit doughy. Would that be because I didn’t use tea towel under lid?

These are the best dumplings I’ve ever made ❀️

Yes I believe this one is too small for 1.5L

Please can someone tell me if this recipe is too much for the small 1.5 L slow cooker?
Would like to make tonight, but I’m cooking pickled pork in my 3L cooker thanks everyone

For a first time making golden syrup dumplings and what a wow factor and i added a bit more lemonade and they were so moist and really tasty and i will make them again

Absolutely delicious, massive hit in my household they all loved these. Made a few times now and each time I get the double thumbs up from everyone.

What a yummy recipe!!
I made it last night and a definite hit.
The recipe doesn’t specify size of slow cooker so I made it in a 3L bowl. I would use my 5.5L next time as the dumplings stuck together and it turned out like a self saucing pudding.
I used a small ice cream scoop to shape the dumplings and used a tea towel for cooking.
It comfortably served 5 adults with leftovers for breakfast. Winning πŸ₯°

Are the quantities of this recipe ok for the small 1.5L slow cooker or should it be in bigger?

Great recipe, worked really well.
Used a dark caster sugar as it was all I had, the sauce was really dark and was kinda toffee flavoured. I also used lactose free cream instead of regular

Wow! This is delicious! I used gluten free SR flour so the whole family could enjoy it too. And I used the tea towel trick. I’ll definitely make this one again!!!

Regular thickened cream it’s called in Australia. A pourable type of cream that you could whip or just use poured

My go to recipe for golden syrup dumplings!


July 11, 2018

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 πŸ™‚
