This recipe was a family favourite when I was young. I went looking for the original recipe at Mums the other day (2011) and discovered the pages in the book stuck together!!! It comes from 365 Puddings [Whitcombe & Tombs Limited – NZ].
1. Place in bowl:
- 2 Cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 dessertspoon butter
- 1 beaten egg.
2. Mix together with enough milk to make a light dough.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon golden syrup
- 1 tablespoon butter
3. Bring to boil in a saucepan (or electric frypan) and add small balls of dough.
4. Cook for ¼ hour.
5. Serve doughboys with the sauce poured on top.
Make sure it is not too hot for small children!
Nice with a blob of whipped cream or Ice-Cream
