Chocolate and raspberry jam roly-poly


You'll need

225 gm (1½ cups) self-raising flour 2 tbsp Dutch-process cocoa ½ tsp baking powder 100 gm caster sugar 150 gm beef suet, coarsely grated (see note) 125 ml (½ cup) milk 175 gm raspberry jam, plus extra to serve To serve: vanilla ice-cream   Chocolate cream 200 ml pouring cream 150 gm dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Sift flour, cocoa and baking powder into a bowl, then stir in caster sugar. Add suet and milk and stir to form a soft dough. Form into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (30 minutes). Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a 20cm x 30cm rectangle and spread with jam, leaving a 2cm border. Roll up into a short cylinder, wrap loosely in baking paper, then two layers of foil, and tie the ends with kitchen string. Place in a large steamer placed over a saucepan of simmering water and steam for 2 hours, topping saucepan up with extra water if necessary.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for chocolate cream, stir cream and chocolate occasionally in a saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth (3-4 minutes). Keep warm.
  • 03
  • Remove roly-poly from steamer, cool slightly then unwrap and thickly slice. Serve warm with chocolate cream, vanilla ice-cream and extra raspberry jam.
Note Suet is available from butchers; you may need to order it.

This recipe is from the August 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

This roly-poly is another example of how good a steamed pudding can be. This version contains suet, which gives the pudding the lovely lightness that only suet can provide, but feel free to substitute butter.
