My Maltesers Arctic Roll is my take on this weeks Great British Bake Off baking category for roulade, as it was Dessert Week tonight. A lot of roulades feature cream, but my family are not fans of cream but they do adore ice cream
When I was a girl a popular dessert for my brother and I was a slice of arctic roll. It is a very simple pudding really, a vanilla swiss roll containing jam and vanilla ice cream, and yet it was quite a threat to have a slice! Nowadays artic roll is still available in the freezer aisle of supermarkets (i think it is made by Walls?), but compared to all of the other fancy frozen desserts and delectable ice creams on offer, the humble artic roll is probably not a pudding of choice or popularity with todays youngsters!
