280 g (2 cups) cake flour
10 ml (2 tsp) baking powder
2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) bicarbonate of soda
2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) Funky Ouma salt
85 g (6 tbsp) butter or baker’s margarine
1 large egg, lightly whisked
125 ml (1/2 cup) full cream milk
125 ml (1/2 cup) Impala apricot jam

Preheat oven to 180C and grease an oven safe pyrex dish of 20×30 cm with butter. Set aside.

Sift together: cake flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Place into food processor and blend the butter into this mixture and add the milk and egg and mix until dough form. Be careful not to over work. If you don’t have a food processor, rub butter in with finger-tips and lastly add egg and milk to form a dough. Don’t over knead.

Roll the dough out to a thickness of 1 cm into a rectangular shape. Spread the jam on top and roll up like a Swiss roll. Cut the dough in to 3 cm slices and place into the prepared Pyrex dish and prepare the sauce.
