I just had a look in an old Edmonds but can't see any recipe like that. It sounds nice. My edition might be too early.

While looking I found an old recipe card for weet-bix trifle and weet-bix rarebit - basically baked weet-bix with cheese and eggs.Yuck.

hi there, i make golden syrup dumplings and they are delicious, I would to make your grapefruit ones just alter the recipe and use marmalade instead of golden syrup, also perhaps some lemon/orange zest in the dumplings.
Golden Syrup Dumplings

Dumplings

* 1 cup self-raising flour
* 1 egg
* 1 tablespoon butter
* 1 tablespoon milk

Syrup

*
1 cup water
*
1/2 cup sugar
*
2 tablespoons Golden syrup or honey
*
1 tablespoon butter

METHOD

Sift flour into a bowl. and rub in the butter until it is like breadcrumbs. Beat the egg and milk together, and carefully mix with the flour to make a soft dough. Do not over-mix as this will make the dumplings tough.

Place the water, sugar, butter and golden syrup into a large saucepan and bring to the boil.

Drop in teaspoonfuls of the dough, cover with a lid and simmer over a moderate heat for about 12 minutes or so until cooked. Remove from the heat and serve with warm runny custard or ice-cream.

Serves 4 - 6 people

Chocolate Surprise in Golden Syrup Dumplings

Serves 4-5

Ingredients

SAUCE
11/2 cups water
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
20g butter

DUMPLINGS
40g butter
1 cup self-raising flour
1/3 cup milk
50g (3 rows) Dark Cooking Chocolate

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
2. Make the dumplings. In a bowl rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Gently add the milk and mix until combined, but do not overwork.
3. Divide the dough into dumpling-sized pieces. Press a chocolate square into the centre of each and totally encase.
4. Place the dumplings into a casserole dish or cake tin. Pour the boiling sauce over the dumplings.
5. Cook in the top half of the oven for 20 minutes.
6. Serve the dumplings immediately with sauce from the casserole dish poured over.

Note: The dumplings can be steamed if the sauce is prepared in a large saucepan. Drop the dumplings into the boiling sauce, cover with the lid and cook for 10-15 minutes.
