Vegan Golden Syrup Dumplings

A classic, warm, deliciously rich dessert, easily veganised for a cosy trip down memory lane. Recipe by Liz.

Serves 4 | Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 20 mins



  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 50 g vegan margarine
  • 1/3 cup golden syrup
  • 2 cup water


  • 1.5 cup self raising flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup soy milk
  • 50 g vegan margarine
  • 1 Tbsp golden syrup



  1. Combine all syrup ingredients into a large pot, bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally.


  1. Add flour, salt and margarine to a medium size mixing bowl. Gently rub with your fingertips until evenly combined.
  2. Add soy milk and golden syrup and mix well until it forms a smooth batter.
  3. Spoon dollops of batter into the syrup. The dumplings will swell as they cook. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes on one side, before gently flipping onto the other side. Use a large serving spoon to avoid breaking the dumplings when flipping. Continue to simmer for a further 10 minutes. Insert a skewer to check if thoroughly cooked.
  4. Serve immediately with vegan vanilla ice cream.
