Golden Syrup Dumplings

Posted by Bee & John on March 15, 2011 at 7:30 PM

I was given a challenge lately, by a very happy Thermomix customer and friend - Di.  How do you make Golden Syrup Dumplings in the Thermomix?

My first challenge was... I've only HAD them once and have never made them before!  My ace in the hole was John - while he had never made them... he had them many times as he was growing up - so he was my taster as I tweaked the recipe.

Actually, it is easy!

In the Thermomix bowl put...


  • 130g of SR flour,
  • 1 egg,
  • 20g of butter, and
  • 20g of milk.
Mix on speed 4 for 10-15 seconds.  It should have formed a nice, slightly sticky dough.  (If very sticky, put a little more flour in and mix again on speed 3 for 10 seconds)

Take out the dough and put onto a board.  There should be some dough left in the bowl, stuck around the blades etc.  If your dough came out smoothly, leaving nothing - put a teaspoon's worth of the dough back in the bowl (to thicken the syrup)

Roll the remaining dough out into a rough sausage shape and cut into 4.  Then roll each of those out and cut into 3 pieces.  Roll each of these smaller pieces into a ball and put on the top tray on the Varoma, put aside.

In the Thermomix bowl add
  • 500g of water, 
  • 120g of sugar, 
  • 30g golden syrup and 
  • 10g of butter.

Put the lid on the Thermomix and the varoma in place. Cook for 20 minutes on Varoma temperature

(put some hot water in thermoserver to warm it up - remember to tip it out before putting dumplings in LOL)

Place the dumplings into the warmed thermoserver and pour the syrup over the top.  Let it sit at least 5 minutes.  Longer if you like them soggy :-)

cut dough into 4 then each one of those into 3

Roll into balls and put into Varoma - leave room - they swell!

After steaming...

Hi VJ - thanks! either leave a little more of the dough in with the syrup, or add 1 heaped teaspoon of flour and see if that helps. don't forget to have the speed on 4 so you don't get any lumps :-)

I love the dumplings and have made them twice. But any suggestions on how to make the sauce thicker. They are so yummy.

Re heating Rice, Fish AND veggies??? They are already cooked, I'd heat them all up in the varoma :-) Use enough water in the bowl... or cook a soup at the same time :-)
Cheers B

Hi Bee
Good to see the conversion of Steamed Golden Dumplings to the Thermomix. I shall make them and tell you how I go.

What is the best way to heat up in the Thermomix? I made the Asian fish fillets on Sunday and heated them up on Monday pm. I used the Thermomix to reheat the rice, but used the oven for the vegies and fish. Could I have reheated all in the oven?

ps. I am still cooking madly....
