Swiss Roll

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for a Swiss Roll. In my opinion, there is no dessert which is so simple to make but looks so stunning than a swiss roll. The no-butter sponge itself bakes in just 10 minutes, and because it's so thin, it cools really fast. Some people are put off by the actual rolling part, but once you make it, you'll realise it's the easiest part of the whole thing. All that's left now is to spread on the jam of your choice, roll, slice and eat!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Eggs
2. Caster Sugar
3. Self-Raising Flour
4. Jam of your choice

Bismillah, let's bake!

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 7.

Grease and line a Swiss roll tin, and make sure to grease the baking paper too.

Place 4 ounces caster sugar into a Kitchen Aid mixer bowl.

Crack in 4 eggs.

Whisk on high speed until ..

.. the mixture is pale and thick enough to leave a trail when you lift the whisk out.

Sift in 4 ounces self-raising flour ..

.. and fold in thoroughly and gently.

Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, and tilt to spread it evenly into the corners.
Place into the oven at Gas Mark 7 for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Whilst the sponge is baking, place a large piece of baking paper onto a surface. 

Sprinkle liberally with caster sugar.

At this point, the sponge should be baked.

Invert the sponge onto the paper with sugar on it.

Peel off the paper lining the sponge.

Roll up the sponge .. 

and the baking paper ..

.. together. Leave to stand for 3 minutes.

Take about 6 tablespoons warmed jam. I used blackberry jam, and warmed it for a minute in the microwave.

Unroll the sponge.

Spread the sponge with the warmed jam.

Roll the sponge up again ..

.. without the paper!

Now, stand back ..

.. and congratulate yourself on making a Swiss roll!

Allow to cool slightly, slice ..

.. and serve with a good old cup of tea!
