  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Grease and line a 27cm x 18cm / 11 x 7in swiss roll tin with baking parchment.

  2. 2

    Whisk the egg whites in a bowl until they are stiff. Whisk the egg yolks and golden caster sugar in another large bowl until the mixture is pale and mousse-like.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 225g Unrefined golden caster sugar
  3. 3

    Use a large metal spoon to carefully fold in the cocoa. Then fold a quarter of the whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it, then fold in the remainder.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 50g Cocoa powder
  4. 4

    Tip the mixture into the prepared tin, spreading right into the corners. Bake for 15 minutes until just firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and cover with a damp clean tea towel. Leave to cool for at least 30 minutes.

  5. 5

    Put the cranberries, golden caster sugar and water into a bowl. Microwave on high for 4 minutes until the cranberries have popped and softened. Alternatively, heat the mixture in a pan for a few minutes. Cool.

    • 200g Cranberries
    • 50g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 3 tbsp Water
