100g plain flour

For the Pecan Praline

100g chopped pecan nuts

200g caster sugar

For the Filling and Decoration

150ml double cream

2tsp sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a swiss roll tin with baking paper.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar together with an electric whisk for 5 minutes, until you have a mousse-like mixture.
  3. Mix the coffee powder with 2 tbsp hot water to make a paste.
  4. Sift the flour into the above mixture, and gently fold to combine.
  5. Spread evenly into the tin. Bake for 12-14 minutes.

  7. Toast the pecans in the oven on a baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  8. Dissolve the caster sugar in 3 tbsp water in a saucepan, on a low heat. Once dissolved, turn up the heat and boil, without stirring, until the sugar begins to caramelise.
  9. Pour over the nuts and leave to set for 10-15 minutes. Break into rough pieces and grind all of it in a food processor.
  10. Whip the cream with the sugar, until it holds its shape.
  11. Spread the cream onto the unrolled roulade, sprinkle with half of the praline and re-roll.
  12. Decorate the top with cream and the remaining praline.
