Fruit Filling
350 g raspberries
4 tablespoons icing sugar, sifted
pulp from 4 passion fruits
3 large eggs
2⁄3 cup caster (superfine) sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon tepid water

24 raspberries, about 100 g, to decorate
sprigs of fresh mint to decorate


  1. To make the fruit filling, place half the raspberries and the icing sugar in a bowl and crush lightly with a fork. Stir in the passion fruit pulp.
  2. To make the sponge, preheat the oven to 400ºF (200°C). Grease a 30 x 20 cm (13 x 9 in.) Swiss roll pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  3. Place the eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture is very thick and pale, and leaves a trail on the surface when the beaters are lifted out.
  4. Sift half the flour over the mixture and gently fold in with a large metal spoon. Sift over the remaining flour and fold in together with the tepid water.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and shake gently to spread it evenly into the corners. Bake for 10–12 minutes or until the sponge is well risen and pale golden, and springs back when pressed lightly.
  6. Turn out onto a sheet of parchment paper that is slightly larger than the sponge. Peel off the lining paper. Remove the crusty edges of the sponge with a sharp knife and make a score mark 2 cm from one of the shorter edges all the way along.
  7. Spread the fruit filling over the hot sponge, leaving a 1 cm border all around. Scatter over the remaining half of the raspberries. Carefully roll up the sponge, starting from the edge with the score mark. Place the roll, seam-side down, on a plate.
  8. Serve warm or cold, cut into slices. Decorate each serving with a few extra raspberries and a sprig of mint.
