Give classic golden syrup dumplings a sweet twist. – by Fast Ed

Anyone who has been camping knows that golden syrup dumplings are one of the great dessert highlights. But even a classic needs a sweet twist from time to time and Ed’s just the man for the job.


1½ cups self-raising flour

½ cup plain flour

100g unsalted butter, at room temperature

2 free-range eggs

Finely grated zest and juice of 4 limes

100ml coconut milk

½ cup passionfruit pulp, plus extra, to serve

1 cup bush honey

½ cup dark brown sugar

625ml pineapple juice

Cream, raspberries and coconut flakes, to serve


  1. Put flours in a bowl, add half of the butter and rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Put eggs, zest, juice and milk in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add to flour mixture and mix until a soft scone texture forms.
  2. Put passionfruit, honey, sugar, pineapple juice and remaining butter in a large saucepan over high heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  3. With lightly floured hands, roll dough mixture into tablespoon-size pieces. Cook dumplings in 2 batches in simmering passionfruit liquid for 5 minutes, basting regularly, until plump and glossy. Ladle liquid into bowls, add dumplings, then drizzle with cream, berries, extra pulp and coconut. Serve.
