Bake number five of my Baking Bible Challenge is a teatime classic – Swiss Roll. This fatless sponge has just three ingredients – eggs, sugar and flour – and can be ready and on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Mine did crack a little when I rolled it up – I think I tried to do it too tightly. But it still tastes good!
The trick, I think, to a good Swiss Roll, is to whisk the eggs and sugar well to get lots of air into the mixture and then very carefully fold in the flour so as not to lose too much of that lovely air you’ve just lovingly whisked in.
This recipe can be found on page 45 of the Baking Bible. Check out my Swiss Roll baking montage!
