4. Place a piece of banana at the top of the rectangle centred on the toffee sauce.

5. Start rolling from the top covering the banana a couple of times.

6. Now fold in the sides and continue rolling until you have a neat spring roll shape.

I used TYJ Spring Roll Pastry which is available in most large supermarkets OR online but you could use filo pastry.
