Nutella Roly Poly


I don’t know about you but I don’t think you can beat a good old-fashioned stodgy pudding on a cold, wet, wintry day. Spotted dick, treacle tart or sticky toffee pudding with buckets of custard is simply heaven on a plate. My personal favourite is jam roly poly. It reminds me of school dinners back in the days when you got what you were given whether you liked it or not!

I really fancied making a jam poly this weekend for Sunday pudding but my pain-in-the-posterior son doesn’t like jam so I racked my brains to think of something that would work as well but that he would like. The answer was simple, Nutella!

It was a bit of an experiment, especially since I haven’t made a suet pudding for donkey’s years but I’m pleased to inform that it was bloody gorgeous!
