  • Citrus zester
  • Sharp knife
  • Pastry brush


  • 4 Large egg whites at room temperature
  • 2 gram caster sugar (stems removed)
  • 1 icing sugar and cocoa powder, for dusting
  • 2 ml double cream (room temperature)
  • 50 gram dark brown soft sugar
  • 150 grams mascarpone (small, Cara Cara, or Valencia)
  • 3 tbsp masala coffee liqueur or normal coffee liqueur (optional)
  • 4 tbsp instant coffee, dissolved in 50ml boiling water and left to cool slightly
  • 100 grams dark chocolate, melted and left to cool slightly


  • step 1
    First, make the ganache. Whisk the coffee and melted chocolate together until you have a smooth, glossy mixture. Leave to cool and thicken, stirring occasionally.
  • step 2
    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a 23 x 32cm baking tray with baking parchment. For the meringue, beat the egg whites and a pinch of salt with an electric whisk until stiffened slightly.
  • step3
    Add 1 tbsp of the caster sugar to the egg whites, then whisk again to stiff peaks. Repeat with the rest of the sugar, a spoonful at a time, until the mixture is thick and shiny. Spread evenly into the tray, then bake for 15-20 mins, or until crisp to the touch and lightly golden in places. Leave to cool completely.
  • step 4
    For the mascarpone cream filling, put the cream, sugar, mascarpone and liqueur, if using, in a medium bowl and whisk until thickened.
  • step 5
    To assemble, sift some icing sugar over a large sheet of baking parchment, then carefully flip the cooled meringue onto it. Lift off the tin and peel away the baking parchment. With a short end facing you, score a line 2cm into the edge of the meringue. Spread the ganache evenly over the meringue, then top with the cream, smoothing it with a palette knife, then carefully roll into a roulade, starting from the scored end and using the parchment to help. Transfer to a serving plate and dust with cocoa powder.

    It was quick and easy. I was short on time so used garlic powder and skipped the actual garlic and sprinkled it on with Italian seasoning before the first roasting time. 20 minutes was plenty of time to cook summer squash.
