Keep this recipe for cold days! Everone loves it, and in South Africa it is a traditional favourite. You must have this at hand, as it is easy and quick and a delight, served as is or with ice cream or custard. Please note that I did two step-by-step photographs, which youll find if you click on photos. One shows how to roll up the dough, and the 2nd what the pudding and sauce look like before going into the oven.

A delicious winter pudding. Short pastry covered with jam, rolled up, and covered with a syrup. A great favourite with all the family and friends, and I introduced this sweet to a hospital to add to their winter menu.
