Jam Roll

  1. Pre heat the oven to 200° C gas 6.
  2. Place the butter, salt and flour into a food processor and blitz until incorporated.
  3. Add the egg and a little water, and pulse together until you have a soft dough, not too soft.
  4. Carefully roll out to approximately 30cm and 15cm.
  5. Lightly egg the edge.
  6. Spread with the Little Scarlet strawberry jam, leaving a 2cm gap around the outside.
  7. Roll up carefully, and not to tight, this will allow the roll to expand when it cooks.
  8. Lay on a large piece of buttered and liberally sugared foil.
  9. Roll up, again not too tight and seal the ends.
  10. Bake in the pre heated oven for 35-40 minutes.
  11. Once cooked cool slightly (this will make it easier to cut) then unwrap carefully, and slice on a slight angle.
  12. Serve with plenty of custard.

Syrup Custard

  1. Whisk the custard powder with 1 third of the milk.
  2. Bring the rest to the boil, then whisk in the custard powder and milk whisking back to the boil, it will then thicken nicely.
  3. Remove from the heat, add the vanilla and Golden Syrup, and taste.
  4. If happy, pour into a jug and cover with cling film.
