Golden syrup dumplings have always been a family favourite, served up with a dollop cream or ice cream they’re delicious. This is the first time though I’ve seen a recipe for raspberry dumplings. Despite the name on the recipe I’m not sure they’re native to Canada!! Of course, you can use fresh raspberries, just gently cook them with some sugar, water and butter, drain them and reserve the juice to mix with the golden syrup.
Here’s another Plum Pudding recipe for you. It’s an old CWA one published by the Herald Sun in the 70s. Back then Mum didn’t serve custard with the Christmas Pudding she would make a sweet white sauce and would whip some cream. Every family differs though, my son-in-law’s family in WA always have Brandy Sauce or Hard Sauce as it’s called below. I’ve never tried the Fluffy Cream Sauce, but I think it would be pretty good too.
