    Serves: 8 

    • 1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
    • 1 egg whisked
    • 1/2 cup of thin cream
    • 60g butter cut into cubes
    • 2/3 cup golden syrup
    • 2 1/2 cups of cold water
    • 2/3 cup caster sugar
    • 50g extra butter

    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cubes of butter with flour by pinching it all together using finger tips. Add the cream and the egg and combine using hands.
    2. With a little flour on your hands, roll mix into 16 -18 individual balls. A little smaller than a golf ball.
    3. Place the extra butter, water, sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan and stir continuously over a low heat until butter is completely melted and sugar is completely dissolved.
    4. Increase heat to a low-medium simmer. Place all balls into the syrup and leave covered for 20 - 25 minutes. Serve with sauce from the saucepan and cream or ice cream.


    If making balls in advance, they might set and go a little hard. Simply roll them around in your hands again until they are soft.
