DELICIOUSLY LIGHT AND FLUFFY SWISS ROLL

Thought I’d share this Swiss roll. It’s quick, easy and always hits the spot. Ours was finished in less than 24 hours!

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • Filling of choice:
  • jam
  • cream
  • caramel

Preheat oven to 180ºC.
Whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy and pale in colour.
Add flour, baking powder and water. Mix well.
I use spray and cook in my flat pan.
Layer the batter and bake for 8 – 10 minutes, depending on your oven.
Then loosen the edges, cover the top with some sugar then a layer of wax wrap, use a wooden board to secure it, then flip it over, roll and unroll before adding my layer of jam and re rolling.

Note:
Sometimes, I add a tablespoon of cocoa to make a chocolate one and add coconut to the sprinkling of sugar.
Add cream and caramel to a thin layer of strawberry jam.
Deliciously light and fluffy.
Perfect every time!
