It’s Friday night and what better way to spend that night than creating your own Maxi Roll (That’s right, not a Cadburys Mini Roll but its obese cousin – the Maxi Roll).
Be prepared to sweat calories after eating this…
1200g Milk Chocolate
568ml Fresh Double Cream
400g White Marshmallows
255g Castor Sugar
227ml Strawberry Jam (seedless)
170g Plain Flour
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
Step One – Make the spongy goodness
Preheat oven to 190OC, grease tin and add greaseproof paper. Cream the sugar and eggs until fluffy and sift the flour into the mixture.
Mix until lovely and smooth and pour into the tin. Check out the smoothness of the mixture. Digital.
Cook for 15-20mins, remove from the oven and cool.
Step Two – Melt the first chocolate batch
Melt 300g of chocolate over a pan of boiling water. Once cooled pour onto a baking tin and place in the freezer for 10mins. This will form the base later on.
Step Three – Make vanilla flavoured filling
Melt the marshmallows over a gentle heat and stir continuously to avoid burning. Whip the cream in a separate bowl, add vanilla essence and add to the melted marshmallow mix and place into the fridge. The filling was a mystery but we’re sure that we have stumbled across Cadbury’s secret recipe for the “vanilla flavoured filling”.
Step Four – Construct
Transfer the sponge onto a sheet of clingfilm. Spoon over a layer of jam and add the cooled marshmallow mix.
Start to roll. Very tricky but keep your patience and roll with all the skill you can muster.
Step Five – Melt the second chocolate batch
Melt the remaining chocolate and cool it in the fridge. At this stage – get involved and have a good dip!!
Step Six – Smother
Add the first batch of the cooled chocolate to the rolled sponge to create the base. Flip the whole thing over and coat the rest of the roll in the second batch of melted chocolate, remembering to cover the sides.
Step Seven – Patience
Put in the freezer for 10 mins to cool off and, if necessary, remove and add another layer of chocolate.
Step Eight – Hell Yeah!
Eat and enjoy!
