Perfect after a Sunday roast, this jam roly poly will have generations remembering it with fondness for years to come. Method Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4) and place a roasting tin with hot water in the oven to create steam whilst cooking the roly poly . In a large bowl sift the flour and add the sugar. Grate the frozen butter into the flour and stir to mix. Make a well and add the egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract. Mix the ingredients together until you get a sticky dough On a greased lined baking tray, spread the dough evenly and then top the dough with raspberry jam. Roll the dough towards you creating a roulade and wrap in the baking paper loosely. Wrap the roll in tin foil loosely (as the roly poly will puff up during cooking) and seal the edges of the foil. Place in the oven for 50-60 minutes or until cooked. Remove and leave to cool. This dessert is best served warm and drizzled in creamy vanilla custard.

A sugar syrup base (rather than alcohol) gives the product a thicker consistency which allows you to add more delicious vanilla flavour without thinning batters or sauces. Nielsen-Massey vanilla bean paste has a delicious aroma and taste and includes seeds so is an ideal substitute for vanilla pods in recipes, such as crème brûlée and ice cream, where you want to add the enticing visual flecks of vanilla seeds without the time or effort of using a vanilla pod. Vanilla bean paste can be used as a direct substitute for vanilla extract or vanilla pods: 1 tsp bean paste = 1 tsp extract = 1 vanilla pod Our favourite is the Nielsen-Massey Madagascan Bean Paste.
