For the Raspberry Mascarpone
2 tbsp Honey
1 - Lemon
125 g Mascarpone Cheese
For the Raspberry Mascarpone Cream
1 punnet SuperValu Raspberries
For the Sponge
100 g Caster Sugar
plus extra for dusting
4 - Eggs
1 - Lemon
4 tbsp Raspberry Jam
50 g Self-Raising Flour
50 g SuperValu Cornflour
1 tbsp Water
- Preheat the oven to 180oC/gas mark 4. Grease and line a 23cm x 33cm Swiss roll tin with non stick baking paper.
- Sift the flour, cornflour and lemon zest together.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until light and aerated. The whisk should leave a pronounced figure of eight on the surface of the mixture when the whisk is lifted out of it.
- Fold in the warm water with a large metal spoon, then gently fold in the sifted flour mixture. Be very gentle so as not to knock any of the air out of the sponge base, but still ensure that all the flour is incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared Swiss roll tin.
- Bake for 20 minutes, until the sponge is well risen and golden brown. Cool slightly on a wire rack, but before the sponge is fully cooled, invert it onto a sheet of parchment paper dusted with some caster sugar, then spread with a thin layer of the warm raspberry jam.
- Meanwhile, to make the raspberry and mascarpone cream, place the raspberries in a bowl with the lemon juice and honey and crush until smooth.
- When the sponge has cooled to room temperature, add a thin layer of the raspberry mascarpone cream, then starting with the longest side rather than the shortest, carefully roll up the sponge away from you to for the Swiss roll. Decorate with fresh raspberries and pistachios and enjoy.
