Serves: 4-6 prep time cook time

A simple, but substantial pudding – just like your gran might have made in the good old days when a meal wasn’t a meal without pudding!

  • ¾ cup milk

Preheat oven to 180oC

1. Sift the flour into a bowl.

2. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles crumbles.

3. Stir in the milk to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured board knead lightly. Roll out to a 20cm x 30cm rectangle.

4. Spread 1/2 the Craig's Blackberry Jam onto the dough and scatter over the grated pears. Roll up from the long side.

5. Cut into 2cm wide strips and place the pinwheels into a well-greased 6 cup capacity oven-proof dish.

6. To make the sauce mix together the remaining 1/2 jar Craig's Blackberry Jam with the butter, sugar and boiling water and pour over.

This is fantastic, especially hot out of the oven, served with vanilla ice-cream!!! Had many requests from friends to make this time and time again.

Also instead of using Blackberry jam, i use Boysenberry.
