I have always been intrigued by the idea of making a Swiss Roll but at the ripe old age of 41 have never ventured there. It just looks too difficult! So flicking through the pages of the baking section of my Mrs Beeton book I got stuck on three recipes. Two needed yeast so I opted for the swiss roll. Opted is a very swishy word indicating that I was pleased with this. I was filled with trepidation. That Madeira Cake is still haunting me.
What you Will Need:-
- 4 oz plain flour
- 4 Oz caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
Put in a hot oven for 8-10 minutes. (My gas oven was on 220)
I am appalled with myself that I have long lived a life without making a swiss roll fearing a level of difficulty that is just not reality! The making of a swiss roll today has become one of life’s lessons for me. Get on with it – it won’t be as difficult as you think!
