Jus Rol. Quick, fresh baked family fun!

Recently I was asked if we would like to review products from the Jus Rol Bake it Fresh Range. I was already aware of some of the range, you may remember my recipes for Easy Chocolate and Peanut Croissants and  Ham and Cheese Croissants . We use the Croissant dough regularly, its a quick and easy way to feed the kids tasty after School snacks, quickly.

But I was not really too aware of some of the other products in the range. So I decided to try the Cinnamon Swirls and the Apple Danish's. They were on offer for 2 for £3, which I think is a good price.

We woke up one Sunday morning, just really wanting a lazy day, so I popped downstairs to bake the Cinnamon swirls, they were really easy to prepare. All I needed to do was pop the dough out of the tin, slice into 6 equal rounds and place on a baking tray. Bake until golden, drizzle with icing and serve! The whole process from fridge to mouth was less than 20 minutes and I had smiles all round for serving 'the best sunday breakfast ever'.

Next we tried the Apple Danish's. These were a little tricker to make, I had to fold them over, press them down, fork them and then spoon some of the apple sauce on top. This didn't take too long, around 8 minutes in total. Then I popped into the oven and baked until golden. Sadly the apple sauce slipped off of most of the pastries, so that was a disappointment, I can't help but think that maybe I didn't quite fold the pastry's correctly? Chester and Millie enjoyed these, they were a perfect after School snack. I however felt that the pastry needed to be a bit sweeter. Maybe next time I will sprinkle some brown sugar on top?

There are lots of products in the range, both sweet and savoury. I really do think that they are a great product to keep in your fridge, perfect for a lazy breakfast, an afterschool snack, a rainy day treat or even an unexpected visit from friends!

Have you tried any products from the Jus Rol Bake it Fresh Range? What are your favourites?
