Put the sugar,egg yolks and sweetener in a large bowl- beat using an electric hand whisk until pale and thick.

Put the egg whites in a large, clean glass bowl and beat with a clean electric hand whisk on a medium speed until stiff peaks form.

Fold in the egg yolk mixture. Pour into the tin and bake in the middle of the oven for 15-18 minutes, or until set and springy to touch. Leave to cool in the tin.

Turn the sponge out onto a clean sheet of baking paper and carefully peel off the paper you baked it on.

Unwrap the ice cream and put it lengthways down the middle of the sponge.

Using the baking paper, roll the sponge around the ice cream to enclose it and twist the ends of the paper to secure.
