Countdown to Christmas Menu – My Festive Roulade on RSG
Today we move from Starters on our Christmas Countdown Menu to desserts! Yes, your eyes are not misreading something, nor have you missed the “Main Course”, but last week on RSG I promised my listeners a Christmas dessert recipe so I had to make a slight change in my post schedule. Do not despair though, I will still do them still before I go on a well deserved break!
We usually spend our Christmas and New Year at our family home in Hermanus and no Christmas layout will ever be complete without the traditional Christmas Pudding with Brandy sauce or my mom’s delicious trifle with sponge and fruit and custard! However, there can never be enough dessert, right? So this year, we will attempt a dessert buffet and my contribution will be this Festive Roulade with Cream and Raspberries. Looking at these images, it is hard to believe that such a delight is made with only 4 egg whites…… well, and a few other bits and bobs….

200gr caster sugar
