Swiss roll Ingredients

Directions for Swiss Roll

  1. Separate eggs. Whisk egg whites with a pinch of salt until the mixture is stiff. Stir egg yolks, sugar and water until frothy. Gradually fold in flour and vanilla sugar, followed by egg white.
  2. Evenly spread the mixture onto a baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 °C/ 350 °F for approx. 10-15 minutes until the sponge has a nice golden colour.
  3. Sprinkle a clean tea towel with plenty of sugar and put the sponge onto it.
  4. Spread the sponge with jam and then carefully roll up with the aid of the tea towel.
  5. Sprinkle the cake with icing sugar just before serving.

TIP

Jam is classically strained through a sieve although it doesn’t have to be. Jams with small fruit pieces also make particularly good fillings. The sponge and fresh fruit also go well together – simply choose your favourite seasonal fruits and get rolling!
Swiss Roll also freezes well and the cake can therefore be made in advance.

JUST ONE MORE THING

HISTORY BOX

If anyone knows about flour-based desserts it is the Austrians! Quick and easy recipes using few and, above all, affordable ingredients which are sure to succeed are no rarity in Austrian cuisine. There was, after all, never enough time or money! The word “roulade” (German for “roll”) means “something rolled up” which is, of course, very apt for this classic.

OUR RECOMMENDATION

Lightly sweetened with honey or served as iced tea, this tea is the ideal thirst quencher. The taste is pleasantly mild, soft and floral, with a fine lemony note.

Already the preparation is a pleasure for the senses. Also as decoration for your meals this mixture is particularly suitable!

We love it!
