Yield: 1 servings
|80 grams||Caster sugar|
|30 grams||Ground almonds|
|600 grams||Vanilla ice cream|
|400 grams||Frozen blackcurrants|
|¾ litre||Red wine|
|¼||Lemon; cut in pieces|
|½||Orange cut in pieces|
|½ litre||Double cream; whipped until stiff|
For the biscuit, beat the egg whites on medium speed to form soft peaks.
Gradually add the caster sugar and continue to beat until firm peaks. At a lower speed , add the egg yolk and carry on until well mixed. With a spatula fold the flour in gently. Spread the mix on to a piece of grease proof paper measuring 32 x 25 cm. Bake in oven at 180C/350F for 8-10 minutes, then leave to cool on a wire rack.
Place the blackcurrants in a pan with 100g of sugar and cook slowly until it is a jam consistency. Put aside. Reduce the wine with 200g of sugar, the bay leaf, the orange and the lemon until very syrupy, then pass through a fine sieve and put aside.
On a work surface, lay a wet cloth, place the biscuit over and spread the jam and half the lemon curd on to it. Then spread the ice cream and finish with lemon curd. Roll as a Swiss roll and wrap in cling film. Place in the freezer for 4 hours. After the 4 hours, pipe the cream over the log with a piping bag and place in the freezer again. Dip the grapes in the syrup and then in sugar and leave to dry. To dress, place a slice of the log on the centre of each plate. Spoon some of the syrup around and finish with the grapes and mint leaves.
