Murdoch Recipe Article Lead - wide


  • 450 g (1 lb) tin sliced pineapple
  • 280 g (10 oz) Swiss roll (jelly roll)
  • 6 scoops strawberry ice cream or store-bought
  • 4 egg whites
  • 145 g (5 1/2 oz/ 2/3 cup) caster (superfine) sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 230°C (450°F/Gas 8). Drain the pineapple slices, reserving the juice.

2. Cut the Swiss roll into six 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick slices. Put them on a baking tray and brush lightly with the pineapple juice. Top each with a slice of pineapple and a scoop of ice cream, then freeze while making the meringue.

3. Put the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar, beating until glossy and stiff. Spread the meringue roughly over the ice cream and bake for 2-3 minutes, or until light golden brown. Serve immediately.
