Tip out the dough on to a lightly floured bench then stretch it until there is enough room to add the filling.

You could try hand kneeding the mixture but we found better success by using our caker mixer.

Step 9: Shaping Into Balls

Dampen your hands with a little water to stop the mixture sticking, then take some mixture and roll it between your palms to make a ball.

Bake in a 180 degrees C (356 F) oven for 40 minutes. Once they are nicely cooked remove them from the oven and leave them to cool for 10-15 minutes and then they are ready to be enjoyed.

Great with a hot drink, or serve as a dessert with a side of vanilla ice cream.
