I have done it! I have successfully managed to breed a Jam Roly Poly and a Baked Apple and have created an entirely new pudding species! The Roly Poly Baked Apple, or experiment #583 as its affectionately know, is the result of a blinding moment of inspiration and 5 minutes work in the kitchen.
I shall describe it, if I may. It's a baked apple, stuffed with jam and wrapped in suet pastry. A BAKED APPLE, STUFFED WITH JAM AND WRAPPED IN SUIT PASTRY. So, just to clarify - there's a baked apple in the middle. And that apple has jam in it. And then the whole thing is wrapped in suet pastry - like a Roly Poly. Apple, jam, pastry.
Please do feel free to nominate me for the Nobel Pudding prize - I'll thank you in my speech.
