Charlotte Royale (Aka Brain Cake)
45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)
11 ingredients
16 servings
This has become a firm favourite at our home and wherever I take it; it's fairly straightforward to make (very easy, if your local supermarket sells jelly rolls - what I would usually call jam sponge rolls) and serves a lot of people (at least 12 large serves, usually 16). It's visually quite different and a delicious variation from the usual Charlotte recipe. I found the basic recipe on, and varied it to suit. The recipe works well with either gelatin or agar-agar � both are easy to use; I usually go the vegetarian route, having one of those in the house.
