Raspberry & Elderflower Swiss Roll

Enjoy the ultimate nostalgic treat, including our Raspberry and Elderflower Jam.


  • 4 eggs
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 75g self raising flour
  • 200ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 227g jar of raspberry and elderflower jam


  1. For the sponge, preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5 and line a 23x33cm/9x13in Swiss roll tin with baking parchment.
  2. Place the eggs, sugar and vanilla seeds into a bowl and whisk until very light, fluffy and thickened.
  3. Sift the flour over the mixture and fold in carefully.
  4. Pour the mixture into the lined tin and smooth it out with a spatula until evenly spread.
  5. Bake the sponge for 10-12 minutes, or until just firm to the touch.
  6. Place a sheet of baking parchment that is slightly bigger than the tray onto the work surface and dust with some caster sugar.
  7. Turn the sponge out onto the parchment paper, then peel off the parchment on the bottom of the sponge. Set aside to cool slightly.
  8. Whip the double cream to soft peaks with the vanilla extract.
  9. To assemble the roll, spread the raspberry jam over the cooled sponge, leaving a 2cm/1in gap around the edge.
  10. Spread the whipped cream over the top then sprinkle over the whole raspberries.
  11. Take the longest edge, then using the parchment paper underneath, roll up the sponge quite tightly, making sure the filling stays inside.
  12. Roll the sponge off the parchment, dust with extra caster sugar and cut into slices to serve.
