Amazing Swiss Roll Cake Recipe 30 Min

Today We’re making the most delicious Swiss Roll Cake Recipe ever so let’s get started first off set your oven to 350 nice and toasty we want to separate four large room-temperature eggs and it is important to not get any yolks in the white so separating these into two separate bowls one at a time. My yolk goes in one bowl and the egg white goes in another.

you can use a hand mixer for this by the way you don’t have to use a stand mixer very proud of myself for not mixing this up. you know if we’re separating egg whites into a bowl we’re going to be whipping them up into a delicious meringue and that meringue has millions of little bubbles in it which will expand and puff our Swiss roll cake up grab your stand mixer and whisk attachment or your hand mixer.

Preparing the Pan and Meringue

if you’re doing that we’re going to add a quarter cup of granulated sugar and whip this on high for about five minutes that’ll puff things up nicely sugar goes in the mixer increase to high while that mixes up grab your 12 by 17-inch sheet pan add some butter to the bottom to do add some parchment paper right on as well and are also going to grease the parchment paper.

we want to release nicely with this and not have anything sticking buttery fingers, so stiff nice this is gonna get folded into our batter and make everything lovely but for now set this aside. it’s time to deal with the egg yolks and the rest of the stuff. I’m adding in the remaining half cup of sugar that’s 100 grams a quarter cup of vegetable oil. a quarter teaspoon of salt.

You go a little contrast to two teaspoons of vanilla for a little bit of extra flavor. We’re gonna whip this up for two minutes until it is light and fluffy. then we’ll add the remaining ingredients you wouldn’t want to add the flour in right now because it would over mix pop that on two minutes on high that looks great a beautiful light pastel lemony color.

Creating the Batter and Baking

Now I’m just going to measure this out in a separate Bowl if you could dump it in if you wanted to I want half a cup or 60 grams of all-purpose flour. I would have used so much flour if I just scooped it up like that because this quarter cup scoops 48 grams, I also want a quarter cup or 25 grams of cocoa powder. I’m using Dutch process which is a beautiful dark and has a fudgy color and texture to it. You could use natural cocoa powder if you wanted.

Finally to help our egg whites out half a teaspoon of baking powder, sift into the bowl directly you always want to sift things like this because cocoa powder is so lumpy it just is there’s a lot of fat in it and it just tends to to Clump. I’m going to mix this on low until it’s just combined.

While that mixes grab your egg whites we’re going to fold this in and make the most amazing Swiss roll cake ever I’ve even told you this is one of my all-time favorite Swiss roll cakes it’s so light and creamy but rich and decadent and soft and amazing. it’s my birthday cake maybe some raspberries or strawberries on the side is a Swiss roll it’s like an ultra like a slightly different Swiss roll because a Swiss roll is filled with whipped cream.

I’m going to fold the egg whites in several batches the first batch is sacrificial you will lose so many bubbles but it’ll lighten the mixture up. so three batches plop that in and we’re gonna fold which means you’re scraping the bottom down and then cutting through the middle and repeating that so you’re mixing gently so you don’t pop all of those meringue bubbles.

but like I said you’re going to pop a lot of them in this first batch the first batch is sacrificing itself so the next batch can go forward and maintain its light texture. you want to mix until you see almost no streaks of white so it’ll take a minute or two of folding but it’s relaxing and it’s kind of mesmerizing.
