Dessert Apple Dumplings.

Dessert Apple Dumplings.



3 apples – peeled, cored and cut into quarters.
2 cups flour
6 dessertspoons butter


1 cup Golden Syrup
1 cup butter
2 cups water


Rub butter into flour and add a little water. Mix and keep adding water until ingredients come together to make a moist pastry.

Roll the pastry out thinly so that it becomes large enough to cut out 12 squares big enough to wrap around each of the apple quarters.

You may find, depending on how thinly you roll the pastry, and depending on how big your apples are, that you have some of the pastry left over.

Wrap each of the apple quarters in a square of pastry and place into a baking tray suitable for the wood fired oven. Ensure each dumpling is placed with the pastry join down.

Melt Golden Syrup, butter and water together in a pan to make a smooth sauce. Alternatively, mix sauce ingredients with boiling water and stir until butter is melted.

Pour over dumplings. Cover with foil or lid and place in oven. Oven temperature should be around 250°C.

Cook for about 30 mins or until dumplings are golden brown on top, the sauce has thickened and the apples inside are cooked. You may need to take the foil or lid off for the last 5 minutes to brown the dumplings.
Serve hot with custard and cream or ice-cream.
