3 eggs

4 oz caster sugar

4 oz plain flour

castor sugar to dredge

1 quantity chocolate (optional) for brown icing

Butter Cream (butter and icing sugar mixed together)

icing sugar to decorate


1. Grease 12" x 8" swiss roll tin, line with greaseproof paper and grease paper dust with caster sugar and flour.

2. Put eggs and sugar in a bowl and place over a pan of hot water. Whisk until creamy and thick enough to leave a trail on the surface when whisk is lifted out.

3. Sift half the flour over mixture and fold in gently with metal spoon, sift and fold in the remaining flour. Add 1 tablespoon hot water, pour mixture into prepared tin and bake for 220'c 425'f gas 7, for 8-12 minutes until golden brown, well risen and firm to the touch.

4. Meanwhile place a sheet of greaseproof paper over a damp tea towel, dredge paper with a little caster sugar.

5. Turn cake out onto paper trim off rusty edges and roll up with the paper inside. Leave to cool on wire rack.

6. Meanwhile, make up the butter icing using icing sugar and butter - you can leave it plain or if you want brown butter icing mix in some melted cooking chocolate to desired shade of brown.

7. When cold unroll and remove paper. Spread one third of butter cream over surface then re roll. Refrigerate for 30 minutes until roll is firm. Coat with remaining butter cream and mark lines with a fork to resemble tree bark. Chill for 1 hour. Before serving dust lightly with icing sugar and decorate with a sprig of real or artificial holly.
