Preheat the oven to 175 C fan. Place a pot or skillet into the oven filled with water (please be careful when taking it out later since it will be VERY hot!)
Add the flour and suet together into a mixing bowl with a pinch of salt. (you can add the allspice here or add it on the fourth step)
Slowly mix and add the milk gradually until its a dough texture; not sticky or dry.
Roll out the jam roly-poly on a floured board then cut out three long slices. If you didn't add the allspice on the second step- you can add it here; sprinkle it over the pastry.
Spread marmalade jam over the pastry then roll up the pastry; squeeze the two ends.
Wrap the roly poly into baking paper with aluminum foil on the outside; make sure not to wrap too tightly then place in oven.
Keep in oven for 45 minutes then take out; make sure that the roly poly is above the steam on a rack.
Well we hope you enjoyed these roly poly’s! If you want the larger and non-bitesize version of the roly poly here is the article. But we also have a lot of videos on our YouTube channel where you can find a lot of cooking shorts!
You can multiple the number of ingredients in this recipe for bigger results or multiple poly’s. Replacing the milk with evaporated milk gives the dessert a much sweeter and more decadent touch. For my one- I used dulce de leche to top; making it much nicer and amazing.
