This is a real hit with our family and friends - very filling, but not overly so, and great on a cold evening! If I haven't got low-sugar jam, I just put full-sugar jam in and leave out the extra sugar, and it's just as good.

I added a reasonale sprinkle of ground mixed spice on top and it was very tasty. The flavours came out when it cooled down a bit.

An excellent and very simple healthy dessert that looks impressive too. My only difficulty was finding no-added-sugar blueberry jam in Budapest, but I managed in the end.

As it is near to Christmas I am going to "Jazz" this up with a cinnamon stick. May also use a "crump" topping, maybe a little more fat this way but will make a more substantial pud for a winters meal. Doing it for Saturday evening with some friends so I will report back to see how it turns out Yummy
