Golden Syrup Dumplings

This is one of my all time favourite desserts, but one that I rarely make. Why? I don't know. It is just so very easy to whip up a batch of these dumplings & then lie back to enjoy the yummy food baby. For Father's Day I cooked a rather superb lamb roast (with all the trimmings) & then I made these dumplings for dessert. And yes, it was awesome! 

Give them a go, you'll be glad you did. And then go on a diet the next day.
