Recipe of the Quarter: South African Roly-Poly Baked Dessert



  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Milk, a few tablespoons, see instructions
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Apricot jam
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Grease a 13 x 9 inch pyrex dish.

3. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and butter in food processor.

4. Add the beaten eggs, and then just enough milk, tablespoon by tablespoon, to make a firm dough.

5. Roll the dough out quite thinly -- on a surface sprinkled with flour -- and form a rectangle.

6. Spread the dough with apricot jam.

7. Beginning at one of the long sides, roll the dough up like a swiss roll. Cut this roll into 1 inch slices, using a serrated knife.

8. Pack the slices, cut sides up, closely together in the greased dish. Add the jam that escaped the dough to the top of the rolls.

9. In a pot, mix boiling water, sugar, butter and vanilla and stir until sugar dissolves.

10. With a tablespoon, ladle evenly over the slices. There will be about 3/4 cup left over.

11. Bake for about 40 - 45 minutes.

12. When the rolls are removed from the oven, carefully pour the extra sauce over the center slices.

13. Serve hot, with custard, ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
