  • 8oz Self Raising Flour
  • 4 oz Butter
  • 4 oz Sugar
  • Half a Jar of Strawberry Jam
  • 30ml Water


    1. Rub butter into flour and sugar until it looks like crumble
    2. Add up to 30ml of water until it starts to blend together and make a pastry like texture and look.
    3. Roll out the pastry so it is flat using flour underneath to stop it sticking !
    4. Add the Jam into the middle and fold over or roll over so all the jam is covered by pastry.
    5. Paint the pastry with a mixture of egg and milk so it will go nice and brown - bake for about 20 - 30 minutes until it goes a goldeny brown (not too brown though).
    6. Add Custard to serve and enjoy !

Went by this recipe but had to guess how thick to roll. What temp the oven should be at. It didn't hold very well unfortunately :(

I found this recipe a bit difficult to follow, the instructions were too simple. How thick should the pastry be rolled? approx what size do I roll it to? What temps do I cook it at? I've used the ingredients and will guess the rest - fingers crossed!

What gas mark would you recommend? Cook in middle or top of oven?
