Ingredients

  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 egg whites
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • ¾ cup cream, lightly whipped
  • ½ x 410 g can Wattie's Peaches Sliced in Light Syrup, drained and diced

  • Raspberry and Maple Coulis
  • 500 g bag frozen raspberries, thawed (or 2 cups fresh)
  • 2 Tbsp Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup

Method

1. Preheat oven to 160°C fan bake or 180°C conventional. Line a 23cm x 32cm Swiss roll tin with baking paper.

2. Mix together cornflour, vanilla essence and white wine vinegar.

3. Beat egg whites in a clean bowl until stiff peaks form. Continue beating, adding sugar a little at a time alternately with the cornflour mix. Continue beating until the meringue is stiff and glossy. The meringue will hold its shape when the beaters are lifted out of the bowl.

4. Spoon the meringue into the prepared tin and roughly spread out to fill the tin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. The meringue should be a pale golden colour and the top should feel crisp and dry to the touch. The centre will still be soft. Remove from the oven. Place a clean dry tea towel over the meringue and leave to cool in the tin.

5. Lay a piece of baking paper on the work surface and turn the meringue onto it with the short side closest to you. Spread with whipped cream, to within 10cm of the top of the meringue. Top with the diced Wattie's Peaches.Carefully roll the meringue away from you to enclose the filling, using the baking paper to help you. The meringue may crack slightly as you roll. Transfer to a serving platter. Dust with icing sugar. Serve with the Raspberry and Maple Coulis.

Raspberry and Maple Coulis

Purée the raspberries in a food processor or blender. Push purée through a sieve with a spoon to remove the raspberry seeds. Stir through the Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Tips

Tips for the Perfect Meringue Roulade:

Make sure the mixing bowl for beating the egg whites is clean and dry – the presence of any fat will inhibit the volume of the egg white when beaten.

Always use baking paper rather than greaseproof paper as you will find that the baking paper won’t stick and will easily peel away from the cooked roulade.

If you don’t have a food processor or blender, the raspberries can be pushed directly through a sieve with a wooden spoon, but will take longer than if the berries are processed first.

The roulade can be made the day before serving. Roll the unfilled roulade to enclose the clean baking paper. Unroll and fill just before serving.
