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:
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.
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!
