Summer Berry Roulade
- 4 large egg whites
- 225g / 8oz / ⅔ cup caster sugar
- 300ml / 10 fl oz / 1¼ cups double cream
- 150g / 5oz / ½ cup raspberries (keep a few back for decoration)
- 150g / 5oz / ½ cup strawberries halved (keep a few back for decoration)
- Mint leaves (optional)
- Pre-heat the oven to 160C (140C fan-oven) / 285F.
- Line your baking tray with baking parchment.
- Place the egg whites and the sugar into a bowl and beat with a mixer for about 10 mins until the mix is peaked. The peaks should be quite stiff.
- Tip the egg mixture onto the baking parchment and spread out over your tray. (If you are making individual meringues then spoon out individual-sized amounts. They will expand so leave enough room around them.)
- Bake for about 50 mins – we like ours still gooey in the centre!
- Whip your cream until it has soft peaks then mix in your berries (or other fruit).
- Spread the fruit and cream mix over your meringue and use the baking parchment to help you roll it over. Don’t be afraid – bits will crack and fall off, it just adds to the charm in my opinion!
- Decorate the top with berries and mint leaves.
