METHOD

  1. Mix Sugar & Egg & 1 tsp Vanilla extract together in a mixing bowl until very pale and fluffy. (This could take 20 minutes by hand-mixing... great workout!!)
  2. Once your satisfied with it's thickness/fluffiness and paleness - sift and gently fold in the flour.
  3. Add and smooth out onto a Swiss Roll tin (Brendan used a baking tray which he usually uses for chips and it didn't work out too well!)
  4. Pop into the oven pre-heated at 180c for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Take it out when it's firm to the touch and springs back when pressed.
  6. Turn the sponge out onto a damp tea towel sprinkled in caster sugar and remove the paper.

Apply your jam first, followed by loads of cream to make it nice, full and a bit messy!

Now, get rolling!! :)
