Slow Cooker Golden Syrup Dumplings

It is getting pretty damn cold now already!  So my thoughts go towards those delicious heavy desserts – puddings!  I’m rather partial to a Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding, these are similar but without all the hoo haa that goes alone with steaming.


  1. In a large bowl, sift in the Self Raising Flour. Add the 30 grams of butter and pinch the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and butter mix and add the 1/3 cup of milk and the 1/3 cup of Golden Syrup.  Mix well.

  3. Set the mixture aside

  4. Turn your slow cooker onto HIGH.

  5. In the slow cooker, mix together the 1 cup of golden syrup, the 1/2 cup of brown sugar and the 50 grams of butter.  Add the boiling water.

  6. Then blob tablespoons of the dumpling mix gently into the syrup, keeping them apart as much as possible in the slow cooker.

  7. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 90 minutes on HIGH.

Grab your slow cooker out now – and don’t put it away until Summer comes back – and yes you can make amazing desserts.  Serve your Slow Cooker Golden Syrup Dumplings with double cream or vanilla ice cream.  It really needs to be eaten right away – if you put leftovers in the fridge the dumplings get a bit chewy by morning.

So there’s a good excuse to go back for seconds, and thirds, then scrape the bottom of the slow cooker with a spoon to grab that extra sauce!

What if you don’t like Golden Syrup?

Well for a start, we can’t be friends.  But there are plenty of alternatives such as:

  • Maple Syrup (although the sauce will be a bit runnier)
  • Light Treacle (pretty good substitute)
  • Molasses (eeek – very very strong!)
