Creative Strawberry Swiss Roll

With knowing the basic on how to make the swiss roll, I am now taking the new challenge to decorate it. As I always believe that art can be combined in these bake or food too, I decided to draw strawberry on my baked strawberry flavour swiss roll.  It really springs my childhood memory – I LOVE drawing…..

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC.
  2. Grease and line a Swiss roll tin.
  3. Put eggs and caster sugar into a large mixing bowl and whisk until light and creamy (it should be very thick at this stage).
  4. Sieve flour into mixture and fold very gently using a teaspoon.
  5. Add on oil and vanilla essence.
  6. Spilt the batter into 2 different bowls (1/4 – red colour and 1/3 porportion).
  7. Scoop the 1/4 red colour batter onto the tray, bake for 1 minute. Remove from oven.
  8. Pour the 1/3 remaining mixture into tray carefully.
  9. Cook for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and springy to touch.
  10. While cooking place a piece of greaseproof paper on a cooling tray and sprinkle with sugar.
  11. When the sponge is cooked remove from oven, tip upside down on sugared paper and carefully remove paper from sponge.
  12. Cut off any hard crusty edges. Spread with jam and roll.
  13. Leave in paper for a few minutes before serving on a plate.
