  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and confectioners' sugar. Make a well in the center. Combine the melted butter, egg and milk; pour into the well. Use a knife to stir until just combined. Set the dumpling mixture aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, mix together the water, golden syrup, brown sugar and lemon juice until well blended. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of butter, and bring the mixture to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling, carefully drop heaping tablespoons of the dumpling mix into the sauce. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 10 minutes, or until the dumplings have risen and cooked through. Ladle syrup over the dumplings occasionally while cooking.

The dough turned out very dry and crumbly. On my second attempt I decreased the flour to 1 cup. The dough should be soft. The caramel sauce is awesome! Since most of the original sauce was absor...

It's quite possible that I did something wrong when making this recipe, but it turned out horribly. The sauce was watery and the "dumplings" were very hard.

This is very easy and good for a quick dessert. Simple idea and works well.
