Is it too early in the day to be thinking about desserts? Of course not!

Serves: 8

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 16 minutes

You’ll need:                          

Vegetable oil for brushing the tin

Whites of 6 eggs

300g caster sugar

80g flaked almonds

400g mascarpone cream cheese

1tbsp heaped icing sugar

300g Sweet Eve strawberries

What to do:

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and place the oven rack quite near the top. Line a standard Swiss roll baking tin, or a shallow baking tray with baking parchment and brush with vegetable oil.

2. In a big, clean bowl, whisk the egg whites till they are quite stiff. Add the caster sugar slowly. Continue whisking until the meringue mixture is stiff and shiny, forming peaks.

3. Spread the meringue mixture in the Swiss roll tin and sprinkle the flaked almonds on top, evenly. Place in the oven and bake the meringue for 8 minutes.

4. After 8 minutes lower the oven temperature to 160°C and bake the meringue until golden brown, which will take approximately another 8 minutes.

5. When the meringue is golden brown, remove from the oven and turn it almond-side down on a big, clean sheet of baking parchment. Peel off the paper from the base and leave the meringue to cool completely.

6. Whisk the mascarpone cream cheese and the icing sugar till stiff. Spread the mascarpone cream and three quarters of the Sweet Eve strawberries, sliced in halves lengthways, evenly over the cold meringue. Use the sides of the parchment paper to roll the meringue roulade onto a serving tray or platter.

7. Keep the meringue roulade in the fridge until you are ready to serve it. Decorate the top with the remaining Sweet Eve strawberries and serve.
