Individual desserts the kids used to love.


  • 1 Swiss roll
  • 1 can peach or pear halves
  • jam
  • egg whites
  • sugar



Cut 1 slice of Swiss roll per person and lay out on a baking tray. I use baking parchment but you can grease tray if you wish. Put 1 tsp jam. on each piece of roll. Place a half of a peach or pear on top of each slice, rounded side up.

Beat the egg whites till they are stiff and add a little caster sugar to taste. Spoon the egg whites over each slice, ensuring they are sealed to the edges. Bake in a slow oven as you would meringue. If time is short, place them under the grill.

Serve with cream or ice cream.

A Swiss roll is what we call a Jelly Roll here in the U.S. Sounds like a good recipe - can't wait to try it.
