Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix the flour and baking powder and rub in the butter/margarine.
  3. Using cold water, make the mix into a pastry.
  4. On a floured board, roll the pastry out into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick (it cooks in a deep dish, so make sure the width is small enough to fit in the dish).
  5. Spread the syrup/jam over the pastry and roll it into a cylinder.
  6. Place the roll into a deep dish.
  7. Dissolve the sugar in the warm water and pour over the roll.
