When it comes to quick and easy desserts that look stunning, you can’t beat a Swiss roll ice cream bombe. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare and it looks truly spectacular once it arrives at the table. The Swiss roll ice cream bombe does not involve any baking, just some slicing and scooping followed by a short stint in the freezer. It’s a great dessert for the summer months and fabulous in winter with a hot chocolate sauce. If you’re looking for a dessert of perfect proportions than this is a winning dish. It’s got the cakey outer layer with jammy bits in every mouth full. It’s got the delicious vanilla ice cream centre which is thick and creamy and with the addition of some hot chocolate sauce, you know your taste buds are going to be in for a treat!
A Swiss roll ice cream bombe for dessert will leave everyone thinking you’ve been working hard in the kitchen, when in reality you have actually done very little! You could make Swiss rolls yourself, if you had that much time to spare but a little bit of shop bought never hurt anyone. You can switch it up a bit though and use a chocolate Swiss roll with a chocolate ice cream if you were feeling super indulgent but I think that the combination of strawberry jam with vanilla sponge and ice cream works brilliantly together. Sometimes, chocolate can just be a bit much. I suppose it just depends on your own personal preferences.
