Ingredients

1 ready made swiss roll, or 6 mini swiss rolls

½ cup (125ml) sherry, port or sweet dessert wine

4 preserved green figs, roughly chopped

4 nuggets preserved ginger, finely sliced

½ cup (125ml) flaked almonds, lightly toasted in a dry pan

4 cups (1 litre) good quality ready-made custard

½ cup (125ml) cream

Extra whole cherries, nuts and sliced preserved figs


Directions

Slice the swiss roll. Place 1/3 of swiss roll slices in a large glass bowl. Mix the cherries, figs, ginger and almonds together. 

Sprinkle with 1/3 of sherry. Sprinkle with 1/3 fruit and nuts. Coat with 1/3 of custard. Repeat layers twice more. 

Cover top with half-whipped cream. 

Decorate with whole cherries, nuts and sliced figs. 

Chill for at least 3 hours.


Variation

Replace the ginger with 4 rings of crystallised pineapple, finely sliced.

Preserved figs are not always available. We have often substituted them with crystallised figs for the same delicious flavour.
