Swiss Roll - Video Recipe!

Check out my how to make Swill roll video on YouTube!

Swiss roll is one of the easiest things in the world to make. This one was meant to be a full-sized one, but I rolled it up the wrong way and ended up making mini rolls instead (I could have totally lied and said I meant to do this all along, but I'm far too honest).

Awesome with clotted cream!

Ingredients for Cake Roll:

- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 1/4 cup self raising flour
- 1tbsp hot milk
- 1tsp vanilla

Ingredients for Filling:

- strawberry jam (or which ever jam or spread you like- could be lemon curd, could be Nutella- anything you like!)

Method:

1) Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C, and line and grease a 26 x 32xm baking pan (grease the baking paper itself- see how it stuck in the video when I forgot to do this!)

2) Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy, and when a trail of puffy mixture is left behind when you lift the whisk

3) Sift in the flour and gently fold in

4) Fold in the hot milk and vanilla

5) Pour into your pan, spread evenly and bake for 10 minutes.

6) Whilst the sponge is baking, put down some more baking parchment on your worktop and sprinkle it with caster sugar to stop the cake from sticking later

7) Take the sponge out of the oven and immediately flip it over onto your sugared paper

8) While still hot, spread as much jam as you like- not too much though or it'll all squish out when you roll it up

9) Roll your Swiss roll up- lengthways from the shortest edge for a fat roll, widthways from the longest edge for mini rolls

10) Eat by itself or with cream/ custard/ ice-cream
