If you are anything like me you will love something sweet to eat during the hot summer months. Whether it is something warm or cold we have to have our treats especially when it involves making them with our kids. Think of all the times when you were little and you did the baking with your mum or grandma it is such a lovely memory isn’t it?

So carrying on with my summer baking theme here is a lovely recipe for baked jam roly poly.


8 oz self raising flour
4 oz shredded suet
1 tsp salt


In a medium bowl rub in the suet and flour until you have a mixture similar to coarse breadcrumbs. Gradually add water, a little bit at a time until you have a rather stiff dough. Then let the suet pastry rest for approximately 15 minutes.

Now roll the pastry into a rectangle and spread the jam leaving a small gap around the edges. Wet the edges with water and roll until it forms a fat sausage shape. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes on a gas mark 4.
