Woman's Weekly recipe Fill a soft marshmallow meringue with a tangy lime filling to make this delicious lime meringue roulade. At only 260 cals per serving, it won't damage your diet too much


For the meringue:
  • 5 large egg whites
  • 150g (5oz) caster sugar
  • 1 level tablespoon cornflour
For the filling:
  • 300ml carton whipping cream
  • 6 tablespoons lime marmalade, sieved
  • Zest and 2 tablespoons juice of 1 lime
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
You will also need:
  • 23x33cm (9x13in) Swiss roll tin, lined with baking parchment

The meringue can be made a day in advance, but only fill with cream on the day of serving. Once it's cold, cover the tin with a sheet of baking parchment then a clean towel until ready to use.


  1. Set the oven to 150C/300F/Gas Mark 2.
  2. To make the meringue: Whisk the egg whites until stiff, and then gradually whisk in half the sugar until the entire mixture is stiff. Add the remaining sugar and cornflour and whisk briefly until its all mixed in.
  3. Spoon the meringue into the lined tin and level the surface, taking care not to press out too much of the air. Bake it in the centre of the oven for about 45 minutes, until its a pale golden colour and just firm to the touch.
  4. Remove the baked meringue from the oven and leave it to cool, uncovered.
  5. To make the filling: Whisk the cream until it just forms soft peaks. Stir in the marmalade and lime zest and juice. Turn the meringue out on to a sheet of baking parchment which has been dusted with icing sugar and peel away the lining paper.
  6. Spread the cream filling over the roulade and use the baking parchment to help roll it up.
  7. Dust over a little extra icing sugar before serving.
