My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

Roly poly ice cream cake
I really don't think there is a simpler pudding than this. I almost felt guilty making it because it involves no cooking at all. Compared to the one in the book this is a miniature version. I used the jumbo version of swiss rolls, this was a medium sized pyrex bowl and one swiss roll was enough. Then stuffed it with chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Your meant to leave it in the freezer overnight but I made this a couple of hours before we were going to eat but it was still firm enough. Swiss rolls are strange things, they didn't freeze. It suddenly hit me that I was going to have to cut through it to serve and it was fine. Even when I had another portion a few days later they still hadn't frozen, very very strange! A definite hit in our house, well you can't really go wrong with chocolate cake and ice cream.....
