250g Self-raising flour

Pinch of Salt

125g Shredded Suet


4 Tablespoons of Raspberry Jam (warmed)


1 Egg (beaten)

Caster Sugar


Jam Roly Poly - Serves 4 - 6

Deliciously simple winter pudding. Ideal served with classic English custard. Create your own variations with strawberry jam or even lemon curd.


Pre-heat the oven to Gas 6, 200 centigrade. Start by sifting the flour into a bowl with the salt. Add the suet and enough water to create a soft but not too sticky dough.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a 20 x 30 centimetre rectangle. Brush the rolled out dough with the warmed raspberry jam leaving a 1 centimetre border around the edge. Brush the border with with milk and fold over all around. Roll the rectangle towards you from the short side but not too tightly. Place on a greased baking sheet with the seal side downwards. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle lightly with caster sugar.

Bake in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes until golden.

Before serving, sprinkle with a little more caster sugar and serve cut into generous slices with custard.
