Tasty Slow Cooker Golden Syrup Dumplings

These delicious slow cooker golden syrup dumplings are a great dessert that you can get cooking just before dinner so that they’re ready when you’re ready for dessert.

Slow Cooker Golden Syrup Dumplings

You will find that these sweet doughy dumplings are incredibly rich and delicious. Some vanilla ice cream, custard or even just heavy cream will match perfectly with this dessert while also helping cut through a bit of the sweetness. They’re also pretty fantastic only on their own so don’t feel like you need to add extras.

Just like the bread and raisin pudding, any leftovers are worth keeping as they will reheat nicely for breakfast or dessert the next day. Just heat in the microwave and enjoy. These should last for up to a week in the fridge.

Golden syrup should be available at any local supermarket in the baking or international section. Of course, you can also find golden syrup online at places such as Amazon. Alternatively, you can use light treacle or molasses as a substitute (I can’t guarantee the result will taste the same).

Golden Syrup Dumplings in the slow cooker

Like most slow cooker meals this one can be left in the pot for an hour or two after it’s finished cooking. This leniency is great if you’re running late or you’re not quite ready to dig into this tasty dessert.

Cooking Tips

  • You can prepare the dumplings mixture the day before you want to make the dessert. Just make sure you store the mix in the fridge until you need it.
  • Adding a drizzle of cream to the sauce at the end of cooking will make the sauce much creamier.
  • As mentioned above, you can substitute the golden syrup with light treacle or molasses.
  • These can cook on low, but they might not puff up as much and instead be more spread out.
