Raspberry and Passion Fruit Meringue Roulade

Meringue roulades may seem to some people a bit of a challenge to make, but actually they are not quite as tricky as you may think.  

If you are entertaining this summer, why not give this a try?

Serves: 8    Prep time: 30 minutes   Cooking time: 15 minutes     Cooling time: 1-2 hours

You’ll need

For the roulade 

  • 4 large egg whites
  • 250 g (9 oz) caster sugar, plus a little extra for sprinkling

for the filling

  • 300 ml (1/2 pint) double cream
  • 4 tablespoons lemon curd
  • 150g (5 oz) raspberries
  • 4 passion fruit

What to do

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5. Line a 33 x 23 cm (13 x 9 inch) Swiss roll tin or roasting tin measured across the base with a large rectangle of non-stick baking paper, snipping diagonally into the corners of the paper then pressing into the tin so that the base and sides are lined.
  2. Whisk the egg whites in a large bowl until stiffly peaking and the bowl can be tipped upside down without the egg whites moving in the bowl. Gradually whisk in the sugar a teaspoonful at a time then continue to whisk for a minute or two until thick.
  3. Spoon the meringue into the paper lined tin, ease gently into an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes until well risen and just beginning to colour then reduce the heat to 160°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3 and cook for 5 minutes or until just firm to the touch and beginning to crack.
  4. Put a teacloth on to the work surface, cover with a sheet of non-stick baking paper and sprinkle with a little extra sugar. Invert the hot meringue on to the paper, remove the tin and leave to cool for 1-2 hours.
  5. To finish, peel off the lining paper from the meringue. Whip the cream until it forms soft swirls. Carefully fold in the lemon curd and passion fruit, and then spoon over the meringue. Sprinkle with the raspberries. Roll up the meringue, starting with one of the narrowest edges, using the paper and teacloth to help. Carefully transfer to a serving plate and remove paper and teacloth. Serve cut into thick slices with extra raspberries, if liked.
