Macadamia Golden Syrup Dumplings
A very Australian combination!
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
40g butter, chilled & chopped
100g macadamia nuts, roasted & roughly chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup demerara sugar
3 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 cups water
Sift the flour & cinnamon into a bowl.
Add the butter & rub in with your fingertips till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.Stir in the nuts.
Add the combined egg & milk & mix to form a soft dough.
To make syrup, put ingredients in a saucepan & stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.
Drop large spoonfuls of the dough into the simmering liquid & cook, covered, for 10 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of a dumpling.
Serve with thick cream (or ice cream). Yummmmm!
