Step 1

Combine flours in a small bowl and add margarine and using your fingertips rub in until well combined (I would use a small food processor).

Step 2

Add egg yolk, Equal Spoonful and milk and using a flat bladed knife, sir until mixture comes together (once again I would do it in the food processor).

Step 3

Shape dough into 12 small balls and set aside.

Step 4

To make syrup, put all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over a high heat and then reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Reduce heat to medium low and add dumplings to pan and cook, covered for 5 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of dumplings comes out clean.

Step 6

Using a slotted spoon, transfer 3 dumplings to each serving bowl.

Step 7

Increase heat to high and cook syrup for a further 5 minutes or until reduced by half.

Step 8

Spoon about 1 tablespoon syrup into each bowl and serve.
