Easy.Meals's picture
Ingredients
  Sweet biscuits 1⁄2 Pound (Plain)
  Ground almonds 3 Ounce
  Hot black coffee 1⁄4 Pint
  Water 5 Tablespoon
  Butter 4 Ounce
  Whipping cream 1⁄2 Pint
  Icing sugar 1 1⁄2 Ounce
  Rum 2 Teaspoon
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 2 Tablespoon (Extra, Adjust Quantity As Needed)
Directions

Crush biscuits very finely; place in mixing bowl with sifted icing sugar and ground almonds.
Mix well, make a well in centre, stir in coffee and vanilla.
Mix together well to form a soft dough.
Sift a little extra icing sugar on to a large sheet of greaseproof paper.
Roll out mixture on greaseproof paper to rectangular shape approximately 9 in. x 12 in.
Spread filling over evenly.
Holding paper with both hands, gently roll into swiss roll shape.
Roll in greaseproof paper, refrigerate until firm.
Weve given a choice of two fillings for the roll cream or butter-cream.
If you want to make the Coffee Cream Roll several days in advance, use the butter-cream filling;, the whipped cream filling will soften the biscuit crumbs if kept for more than 1 day.
However, if making the roll to use the same day the whipped cream filling is delicious.
Butter-Cream Filling Place sugar and water in saucepan, place over low heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves.
Bring to the boil, boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cool.
Beat butter until creamy, gradually add cold syrup, beating well after each addition.
Add rum to taste, beat well.
