(Serves 8-10)
200g plain flour
200g caster sugar
4 eggs
2 drops vanilla essence
300ml whipped cream
Icing sugar, for dusting

Apple & Lime Jam
3 red apples, grated
Juice of 2 limes
Zest of ½ lime
300g caster sugar
100ml water


Whisk the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the flour a bit at a time until combined.

Grease and line a 40cm rectangular baking tray.

Pour the cake mixture in and gently spread so as not to knock out too much air from the mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for 10-12 minutes.

Flip cake out onto a damp tea towel. Remove the baking paper and use the damp tea towel to gently roll the cake up. Allow to cool.
(Apple & Lime Jam) Place all of the ingredients into a pan and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water and simmer for another 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the lime zest and cool.

Gently unroll the cake. Spread with most of the jam and the whipped cream and then re-roll. Dust with icing sugar and serve.
