Gluten Free Jam Roly Poly

200g Amisa Chestnut Flour (plus extra for rolling)

½ tsp xanthan gum

15g unsalted plant-based butter (plus extra for greasing)

Pinch of salt

2 tbsp caster sugar

75g gluten free vegetable suet

115ml plant-based milk, (plus extra for brushing)

130g unseeded raspberry jam

100g plant-based custard, to serve

  1. Preheat the oven to 200/180C fan. Fill a deep roasting tin with boiling water. Place in the bottom of the oven, and then place a wire rack above it.
  2. Cut a sheet of baking paper approx 30cm long. Grease one side with the extra plant-based butter. Cut a sheet of foil around the same size and set aside.
  3. Add the flour, xanthan gum and salt to a large mixing bowl and mix well. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour. Add the sugar and suet and mix well. 
  4. Gradually add the milk whilst mixing well using a spoon to create a dough. If it’s too sticky, add a little extra flour, a teaspoon at a time.
  5. Rip off an extra sheet of baking paper and dust with flour. Turn the dough out onto the floured surface, dust a little extra flour on top, and then roll out using a rolling pin to make a rectangle approx 30 x 22cm in size.
  6. Spread the jam evenly on top of the dough, leaving approximately a 1.5cm border at the edges. Brush the border with the plant-based milk, and then roll the dough from the short end (like a Swiss roll). Pinch the edges together to seal the jam.
  7. Carefully place the Roly Poly onto the greased side of the baking sheet and wrap, twisting the ends. Then roll this in the foil – not too tightly, as you want to leave the roly-poly some space to expand while baking.
  8. Place the foil-wrapped dough onto the wire rack above the water-filled tray. Bake for around 50 minutes. Meanwhile, add the custard to a small saucepan and gently warm over a low heat, stirring occasionally.
  9. Remove from the oven, slice and share. Serve with hot plant-based custard and enjoy!
