About this recipe: This was originally a batch of fairy cakes, but I had made the mixture before I realised we had no cake cases. So this was put into a lined loaf tin with some jam and my husband told me it was just like jam roly poly, but in a loaf shape instead!
To check if it is ready, slide a sharp knife into the middle. If it comes out clean, it is done.
This goes great with custard or ice cream.
To make this cake dairy free, ensure you use margarine instead of butter.
Great for a pudding after tea. Cooking time was too long in my oven so will reduce this next time. - 15 May 2015
