Serves: 4 

  • 150 ml whipping cream
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla essence
  • 75 g thick, unsalted pasturized curd (I prefer Greek-style)
  • 125 g small strawberries, sliced
  • 1 ripe peach, chopped
  • To decorate
  • 2–3 tbsp powdered/icing sugar, sifted

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. Whip the cream with vanilla essence until it forms soft peaks, then fold half of the curd. Spread this mixture over the sponge cake, leaving a 1 cm (1/2 in) border all round. Scatter the fruit over the cream. Carefully roll up the sponge and place seam side down on a serving plate.
  2. Decorate by sprinkling icing sugar on top. For the striped effect, cut strips of parchment/wax paper and put on the cake/roll. Sprinkle icing/powdered sugar and then remove the paper.
