Who invented the swiss roll?

The Swiss roll is a type of sponge cake that is rolled up with a filling, typically cream or jam. It is believed to have originated in Central Europe in the 19th century. The earliest known recipe for a Swiss roll was published in 1852.

The cake became popular in North America and Britain in the early 20th century. It is often served at children’s parties and can be decorated with icing, chocolate, or fruit.

Ingredients for a jam swiss roll

  • 4 Eggs
  • 100 g Caster Sugar
  • 100 g Self-Raising Flour

Filling

  • 4 tbsp Strawberry Jam or Raspberry Jam

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven at 200°c fan/220°c/425°f/gas 7. Grease and line a 13 x 9 in swiss roll tin with baking paper.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a large bowl until the mixture is light and frothy, and the whisk leaves a trail when lifted out. Sift the flour into the mixture and carefully fold in. Turn the mixture into the tin and give it a shake, making sure it spreads evenly into the corners.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown and shrinks from the edges.
  • Meanwhile, place a non-stick baking paper bigger than the tin on your work surface and sprinkle it with caster sugar.
  • Invert the cake onto the sugared paper. Carefully peel off the paper on the bottom of the cake. Trim the edges with a sharp knife.
  • Leave to cool slightly, then spread with jam. Roll up the cake firmly.
