For the roulade

4 medium free-range eggs

120g/4¼oz caster sugar

100g/3½oz gluten free plain flour, sifted

20g/¾oz unsalted lactose free butter, melted, plus extra for greasing

For the filling

190g/6½oz caster sugar

4 unwaxed lemons, finely grated zest and juice

130g/4⅔oz unsalted lactose free  butter

1-2 tbsp cornflour

3 large free-range eggs and 1 large free-range yolk, beaten

For the cream

600ml/20fl oz lactose free double cream

30g/1oz icing sugar, plus extra for dusting

To serve

150g/5½oz strawberries, 3 reserved for decoration, rest sliced and mint sprigs


Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Grease and line a 30x24cm/12x9½in Swiss roll tin with baking paper. For the roulade, place a large heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Add the eggs and sugar to the bowl and, using an electric mixer, beat for 3–4 minutes, or until doubled in size. Take off the heat and continue to beat for another 4–5 minutes on a medium to high speed.

Using a large metal spoon, fold in the gluten free flour in three batches making sure it is all incorporated. Fold in the melted lactose free butter in the same way. Gently pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread evenly using a spatula. Bake for 10 minutes or until just firm and lightly golden-brown.

Dust a large baking sheet with icing sugar and carefully turn the roulade out. Carefully peel away the baking paper used to line the tin. Starting at a short end, fold the edge of the paper over the cake. Roll the cake up into the paper. Allow the roulade to cool completely while rolled.

For the filling, first make a curd. In a saucepan, heat the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and lactose free butter over a medium heat. Stir as the lactose free butter melts and when combined stir in the cornflour. Keep stirring, using a hand whisk, for another 2–3 minutes.

Take off the heat and stir in the beaten eggs. Return to a low heat and keep stirring until the curd is thickened and leaves a trail on the surface when the whisk is removed (about 15–20 minutes). Leave to cool and set.

For the cream, beat the lactose free cream and icing sugar together until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed. Transfer to the fridge to chill.

Once the roulade is cool, unroll it and spread with a generous layer of whipped lactose free cream (keep any remaining cream for the decoration). Top with a layer of curd and sliced strawberries. Tightly re-roll the roulade and place on a serving plate.

Spread the remaining lactose free cream over the roulade and score with a fork. Top with the strawberries and sprigs of mint.
