when i want to bake something but don’t know what, i usually take the easy way out
swiss roll…roll..roll (echo)

ingredients (30 x 30cm cake pan)

swiss roll
40g unsalted butter
10g milk (A)
60g cake flour (sifted)
1 egg
3 egg yolk
40g milk (B) (warmed to 60 degrees C)
3 egg white

150g whipping cream
1 heaped tbsp of speculoos cookie butter
2 heaped tbsp nutella

IMG_9546食材(30 x 30厘米烤盘)

无盐黄油 40克
牛奶 (A)10克
蛋糕粉 60克 (过筛)
鸡蛋 1颗
蛋黄 3颗
牛奶 40克 (B)(加热至60摄氏度)
蛋白 3克
绵白糖 60克
香草精 1.5小匙

淡奶油 150克
焦糖饼干酱 1大匙
巧克力榛果酱 2大匙


– line cake pan with baking paper

– prepare cake batter ~ boil butter and milk (A) in saucepan and turn off fire once the entire mixture boils
准备蛋糕体 ~ 黄油和牛奶 (A)放入奶锅加热至烧开。离火

– pour in all sifted flour at a go and mix well using a wooden spoon till mixture is no longer lumpy

– when the above mixture comes together in one lump, place saucepan back to stove on low heat and warm mixture up for 30 seconds

– continuing stirring till mixture becomes glossy and the bottom of your saucepan forms a thin skin. turn off heat

– beat egg, egg yolks and vanilla extract together

– add egg mixture into butter/flour dough in 3 additions; incorporating well before next addition

– continue to mix until mixture becomes ribbon stage. the key here is to ensure all egg mixture is incorporated into butter/flour dough when the latter is still warm. then, add in the 60 degrees C milk (B)

– beat egg white, adding caster sugar in three additions until stiff and shiny peaks form

– pour egg yolk mixture all at once into egg white meringue and fold well using ballon whisk. then change to spatula to ensure the bottom of the batter has been well mixed

IMG_9539use a wooden skewer to drag the lines

bake in preheated oven of 180 degrees C for 15 – 16 mins
送入预热至180摄氏度烤箱烤15-16 分钟

– remove cake from oven, invert and peel off baking paper immediately. then invert back up immediately (i.e. the patterned surface facing upwards). cover surface with a piece of parchment paper and allow cake to cool

  • meantime prepare filling. beat whipping cream till stiff peak. add in both speculoos cookie butter and nutella, and whip till well mixed
    准备内陷~ 淡奶油打至硬性状后加入焦糖饼干酱和巧克力榛果酱。打法至均匀即可

    Hi. Victoria. Your souffle roll looks awesome! Your Bakes are always so perfect looking. Hope to try this but I have a few questions. So when you add the egg mixture into the dough do you use hand or mixer tp mix. Also you mentioned pouring the whole dough mixture into the meringue . so would this cause the meringue to deflate as I am bad with mixing. Lastly pandan juice is mentioned in your method??? Is it all the 40ml milk.. Your roll is so smooth with no cracks. Hope to hear from you before I try. Thanks so much. Chloe

    • Hi Chloe. ok, the responses as follows:
      1. i used an egg whisk to mix the egg mixture into the cooked dough. it is a hand whisk

      2. once you add all the egg mixture into the cooked dough, it will be more of a \”liquid\” consistency. just like a thick egg yolk batter. beaten egg white meringue, and i mean a well beaten one, has a pretty good degree of firmness and can hold it up for a while. having said that, you should be fast i.e. do not leave beaten egg white aside and start washing dishes etc… of course, when pouring in egg yolk batter, you do try to be gentle. if you are afraid, try spreading or swirling the egg yolk batter around the meringue so that you don\’t create a well in the egg white meringue. it will be fine.. don\’t be afraid. the egg white meringue is stronger than you think 😉

      3. thanks.. once again you are looking out for me. no, there isn\’t pandan juice. it was a copy & paste from an old post. i hv updated it. it should be just milk B i.e. the remaining 40g

      hope this helps

    好漂亮呢!!!!真有你的 对我来说好难好难:(

  • chloe says:

    Hi Victoria . thanks for your detailed explanation. I baked this awesome roll.last night and the texture is soft and spongy. Unfortunately my piping skill is bad and I ended with crooked lines. Heehee. Yours is so perfect and the roll is so nice and roundish. Nevertheless this roll tasted so good and it is pure bliss. I will try your pandan souffle next and update you . thanks for sharing. Chloe.

    Hi Victoria. When i unrolled my swiss roll aft chilling, the skin stuck to the baking paper. How to prevent this from happening?

    • Victoria says:

      Hi Fauziah, if you are very sure your cake has been thoroughly baked, the only suggestion I can give is to change your baking paper. These two reasons are usually main culprits of causing cake skin sticking. Most often then not, my readers resolve the problem by changing the baking paper though 🙂

      • Fauziah says:

        My cake was thoroughly cooked – well i tasted it n it was cooked. I also used a new baking paper aft rolling it. Wonder was it due to the cocoa powder in the pattern? Can i sub cocoa powder with perhaps baking chocolate?

  • Huizhen says:

    Hi Victoria, which brand is your baking paper is?

    • Victoria says:

      Hi, I switch btw a Japanese and Germany one. I’m not in Beijing currently do can’t advise. Every country carry Es different one and I don’t think the one I use is available in SG as I once tried looking out for it

  • Syana says:

    Hi, I tried your recipe today. The cake texture turned out beautiful! The problem was it cracked when I rolled it. Any suggestion as to how to prevent it?
