Has anyone made these in the oven ? have been requested to make them for a dinner for about 12 people and will be busy with other things so thought if i could just pop in the oven while having maim course would be easier for me any suggestions appreciated thanks

Golden Syrup Dumplings

Serves 4-5


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

40g butter
1 cup self-raising flour
1/3 cup milk


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.
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.

Really love this old one:
Delicious Rhubarb Dumpling
1 1/4 C flour
1 tspbaking powder
4 oz butter
Milk & water to mix
3 to 4 stalks rhubarb chopped
1 C sugar
1 Tbsp golden syrup
1 knob of butter
1 Cup boling water
(Mix well to combine)

Rub butter into sifted flour and baking powder. Add milk/water combo to create a pastry mix. Roll out - fill with rhubarb and roll as in a roly poly. Pour syrup into a dish and place pastry on top. Bake at 200 deg cel for about 30 minutes...baste with syrup.
