Roly Poly Pudding



Got a Mom with a sweet tooth? Inge Loker from Snap, Sizzle and Cook brought along her Roly Poly pudding for us all to dig in to.


Snap, Sizzle and Cook is also a food blog all about home cooking; as you can imagine, it didn’t take long for Inge and myself to click! You’ll find some scrumptious dishes shared on her blog; it’s definitely worth a look through.


Inge, a down-to-earth Mom and foodie at heart, was one of the few of my invited guests who taught herself how to cook. At school she took Home Economics and learnt a great deal there; this Roly Poly pud is one of the first dishes she made at school. What may have been one of her first dishes to learn; it has stuck with her throughout life and become a dessert her family enjoy! Another dish Inge shared at the Mother’s day lunch (unfortunately, there’s no recipe for this one), was her take on coronation chicken. Like many of us home cooks, measurements aren’t exact and each time it is made it is adapted to suit the taste buds catered for.



Back to the golden sponge of dessert goodness, which tasted delicious on the day. Inge warns that it’s best to make this dish on the day you plan to eat it and make sure you eat it straight away while still warm, and with a good healthy dollop of cream on the side.


Ready to try it? It certainly will warm your Mom’s heart up and win her over on Mother’s Day!
