Roly Poly Baked Apples

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.

You need:

  • 4 Eating apples, cored, but not peeled
  • 4 tsps jam
  • 4oz Self raising flour
  • 2oz suet
  • 1oz caster sugar
  • Milk for brushing

  1. Preheat to 18- degrees
  2. Mix the suet and sugar into the flour and add splashes of water until you can make it into a soft dough. Divide into 4 pieces.
  3. Poke a teaspoon of jam into each apple
  4. Roll out the pieces of suet pastry and use them to wrap the apples.
  5. Place on a baking dish and brush with milk. Use the milk to stick down any flaps too
  6. Bake at 180 for about 30 mins
