Strawberry Swiss Roll

    35 minutes

    I have always enjoyed eating these but only recently started making them as I didn't realise how easy it was. Cream and strawberries rolled in a thin sponge cake.

    11 people made this

    Serves: 12 

    • Sponge
    • 4 egg yolks
    • 1/3 cup (90g) sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 4 egg whites
    • 25g icing sugar
    • 75g flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • sugar, for rolling
    • Filling
    • 200g thickened cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 500g strawberries, diced

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
    2. Sponge: Whisk the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until fluffy with a hand mixer.
    3. In another bowl whisk the egg whites with the icing sugar until stiff then pour into the bowl with the egg yolk mixture.
    4. Mix the flour with the baking powder then sift over the egg whites. Mix everything carefully with a whisk. Don't stir it too much.
    5. Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
    6. Sprinkle a tea towel with sugar and carefully invert the finished sponge onto it. Remove the baking paper then roll the sponge up and let it cool.
    7. Filling: Whisk the cream with the vanilla then fold in the strawberries.
    8. Gently roll apart the sponge and spread with the strawberry-cream mixture. Roll up again in the refrigerator and allow to set.

    Very easy method with a great result. More of a sponge swiss roll than a roulade (due to the flour added), but all who ate it enjoyed it! Served 8-10 generous slices.  -  18 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)

    Very easy and quick to make. Yes, it is more of a sponge than a roulade, but it was very much appreciated! I added a fresh strawberry sauce and it completed it perfectly. In my case it just managed to serve a decent slice for 9 people, but no seconds..!  -  15 Sep 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
