The July 2010 Daring Bakers’ Challenge was hosted by Sunita of Sunita’s World – Life and Food. Sunita challenged everyone to make an ice-cream filled Swiss roll that’s then used to make bombe with hot fudge. Her recipe is based on an ice cream cake recipe from Taste of Home.
This was a good challenge. There is little baking to be done, but as I had never made Swiss Roll before it was a good experience.
We were supposed to make a chocolate Swiss roll with a vanilla ice cream and a chocolate ice cream and hot fudge sauce. I made a raspberry flavoured Swiss roll filled with pink raspberry flavour cream, a vanilla ice cream and a blackcurrant ice cream and raspberry sorbet. With blackcurrants recently being picked and a dad who detests chocolate, I thought this was the ideal time to mix things up a bit and do something that we could all enjoy. And enjoy it we did!
Okay, so it might have been a bit sloppy, but this was wonderful. And was scoffed so quickly that we barely had time to notice the vanilla ice cream melting so quickly!
