Arctic Roll is a retro favourite that that whole family will love. Soft sponge wrapped around vanilla ice cream with strawberry jam, what's not to love?

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C (220°C fan / Gas Mark 6) and line a 22x32cm swiss roll tin with a lightly oiled piece of baking parchment.

  2. Beat the ice cream in a bowl until it begins to soften and can be moulded then place onto baking paper and roll it into a thin sausage approximately 25-30cm in length, 5cm in the diameter. Wrap up the ice cream and refreeze for at least an hour.

  3. Whilst the ice cream in freezing whisk together the eggs and sugar until pale (this should take a few minutes) and should triple in volume. The mixture should ‘hold a trail’ when the whisk is removed. Gently sift in the flour and fold in to the mixture. Add one tablespoon of warm water and fold this in.

  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden-brown and firm to the touch.

  5. Place a sheet of baking parchment that is slightly bigger than the tray onto the work surface and dust with some caster sugar.

  6. Turn the sponge out onto the parchment paper, then peel off the parchment on the bottom of the sponge. Set aside to cool slightly.

  7. To assemble the roll, trim the two long sides of the sponge into straight lines. Spread the jam over the sponge, make sure to leave approx a 2cm gap at each short edge and a 4cm gap along one of the long edges.

  8. Remove the ice cream from the freezer and position it lengthways across the sponge. Using the parchment roll the sponge up and around the ice cream. Carefully trim each end of the roll then serve immediately.
