This roley poley pudding recipe has been in my husband’s family for decades. It is one of those puddings I never really suggest when planning a dinner for guests.
I always imagined roley poley pudding to be a desert that ‘old’ people bake. You know – your granny or aunt or the ladies at the church that would bake for the farmers market or church bazaar. They bake roley poley puddings. But let me tell you that this dish is underestimated! It is a lovely sticky, sweet desert that will melt in your mouth.
Roley poley pudding is a combination of a lovely sweet pastry, filled with delicious sweet apricot jam, baked in the oven and covered by sugary sweet syrup! Yum! All my favorites in one – butter, sugar and apricot jam! Home baked goodness.
