So… last week didn’t actually use up all the figs! And I’ve some dried prunes that need using up. So I found this recipe on BBC Good Food for a fudgy figgy swiss roll.
I start by mashing up the figs and prunes in the food processor.
Then the food mixer goes to work on the egg whites, like we’re making a meringue, and sugar added,
This gets cooked in a lined swiss roll tray.
This gets cooked for 15 minutes at 170c fan, then turned out onto parchment paper lined with caster sugar.
Once cooled it gets unrolled. This wasn’t easy. The fig mix makes it really sticky, so there were some holes…
Raspberry jam (as we’ve got two jars open for some reason) gets microwaved to make it easier to spread over, then non-fat creme fraiche (Weight Watchers stuff) goes on. Then it gets rolled up… which was messy due to the holes… I’m sure it’s much easier if you’re using the prescribed whipped cream and sugar with less sticky figs…
This had to get chopped in two to fit our plates.
By the time we ate it the creme fraiche has seemed into the cake and made this lovely gooey texture. We served it with banana fake ice cream in a failed effort to reduce calories :)
