This featherlight Swiss roll recipe with a raspberry and cream filling is a delight at the tea table or as a dessert. You may also top it with some sliced almonds and use any other berries. If your berries are exceptionally sour, sweeten them by crushing them somewhat and let them stand for 15 minutes with castor sugar sprinkled over.
