Description

Delicate sponge layered with cream and strawberries makes this pretty roulade a luxurious dessert!

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons plain flour, sifted
  • 250g strawberries, hulled, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pure icing sugar, sifted
  • 250g mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons flaked almonds, toasted
  • Pure icing sugar, to serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a 25cm x 30cm Swiss roll pan. Line with baking paper. Dust lightly with flour.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar together for 5 minutes or until thick and creamy. Using a large metal spoon, fold flour into egg mixture until just combined. Spread mixture over prepared pan. Smooth surface. Bake for 5 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  3. Turn sponge onto a sheet of baking paper. Carefully peel away baking paper lining. Allow to cool. Mash strawberries roughly with a fork. Add icing sugar and stir to combine. Fold strawberry mixture into mascarpone. Spread mixture over sponge, leaving a 1cm border. Using baking paper as a guide, roll up sponge from short end to enclose filling.
  4. Place sponge, seam side down, on a plate. Top with almonds. Dust with icing sugar. Serve.
