  2. Gently microwave the Golden Syrup to loosen it's consistency, once it has cooled slightly, add the add and lightly beat the mixture together. Pour the Syrup & Egg mixture into the flour mix and combine with a plastic spatula. Turn the combined mixture onto a gently floured surface and kneed the dough until soft. Wrap the dough in cling-film and allow to firm-up in the fridge for 15 minutes.
