Arctic Roll

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


4 eggs

100g caster sugar

100g plain flour

1 block of vanilla ice cream

8 tbsp raspberry jam (use more or less to taste)


  • Preheat the oven to 190c.

  • Line and grease a 10 x15 inch swiss roll tray.

  • Tip the eggs and sugar into a bowl and whisk on a high speed until light and fluffy. This should take around 6 minutes.

  • Sieve the flour into the egg mixture and gently fold in.

  • Pour into the lined tin and bake for 8-10 mins . The sponge should spring back when touched.

  • While the sponge is still warm, sprinkle a generous amount of sugar onto a clean tea towel and lay the sponge on top.

  • Peel off the baking paper and spread with a layer of raspberry jam.

  • Take the ice cream block from the freezer, unwrap and roll the ice cream up in the sponge.

  • Leave in your freezer to firm up for about 10 mins.

  • Dust with icing sugar to serve.
