These delicious slow cooker golden syrup dumplings are a great dessert that you can get cooking just before dinner so that they’re done when you’re ready for dessert.
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 whilst also helping cut through a bit of the sweetness. They’re also pretty amazing just 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. Simply reheat 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, light treacle or molasses can be used as a substitute (I can’t guarantee the end result will taste the same).
Like most slow cooker meals this one can be left in the pot for a hour or two after it’s finished cooking. This is great if you’re running late or you’re not quite ready to dig into this tasty dessert.

Adding a drizzle of cream to the sauce at the end of cooking will make the sauce much creamier.
As mentioned above, golden syrup can be substituted with light treacle or molasses.
These can be cooked on low but they might not puff up as much and instead be more spread out.
