Tips to make the Swiss Roll

The Mascarpone and Berries Swiss Roll requires just a few steps but there are some things you would like to pay attention to.


1. Always use eggs at room temperature to ensure that the egg whites will form stiff peaks.


2. Fold the egg whites gently to create a light and fluffy batter. Stir one third of the egg whites into the yolk mixture to loosen. Fold in another third, working gently with a spatula to lift the mixture and keep it from deflating. Repeat with the remaining third. Using a spatula, gently fold the flour mixture into egg mixture to combine.


3. Use a baking sheet only. Other pans may be too deep, making it difficult to remove the cake from the pan.


Do not overbake. – This sponge bakes fast. It only takes 8 - 10 minutes. Don’t bake too long or the edges get too brown and will crack during rolling. The cake is done when you lightly touch the surface and the cake springs back.

Tips to roll the sponge biscuit

1. Dust a clean kitchen towel with powdered sugar. Remove the sponge from oven. Run a knife around the outside edge to loosen it from the pan. Turn out the cake onto the prepared towel. Remove lining baking paper. The towel prevents the cake from sticking to itself when rolled and the powdered sugar prevents the cake from sticking to the towel, or prevent cracking when the towel is unrolled later in the process.


2. Once your cake layer is baked, you can also flip it onto parchment paper. If you’re making a Chocolate Cake Roll, dust your parchment with cocoa powder. If you’re making a Vanilla Cake Roll, use icing sugar.


3. Roll the cake from the narrow side, along its length.


6. Let it cool – Let your roll cake cool down before you unroll and fill with filling.



If the roll is not rolled immediately after it has been removed from the oven, it will harden and break.

3.  In a saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons water with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Remove from heat.


4. Gently squeeze the water out of the gelatine sheets. Add it in saucepan (water and vanilla). Stir well until the gelatine has dissolved.


5. In a bowl, beat the mascarpone and sugar until smooth. Stir the dissolved gelatine in. Refrigerate.


Make the Biscuit


6. Preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F). Butter and line with baking paper a 38x25 cm (15x10-inch) baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix flour and almond flour. Set aside.


7.  In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until pale and fluffy. 


8.  In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks.​ 


9. Stir one third of the egg whites into the yolk mixture to loosen. Fold in another third, working gently with a spatula to lift the mixture and keep it from deflating. Repeat with the remaining third. Using a spatula, gently fold the flour mixture into egg mixture to combine.


10. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and level the surface with a spatula. Bake in the middle of the oven for 8-10 minutes, until the top of the cake is golden. Don't over-bake or it will be hard to roll.


11.  Meanwhile, run a clean kitchen towel under running water and wring it thoroughly so it is just moist.


12. Remove the biscuit from oven. Top the cake with the moist kitchen towel, and flip the pan. Remove lining baking paper. 


13. Brush the cake with the syrup. Roll the cake in the towel (from the narrow side) along its length. Let cool completely.

Starting from one short end, roll up biscuit, using paper, to form a Swiss roll. Wrap paper firmly around roll to secure. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until well chilled.


15. Using a palette knife, spread the top and sides of the roll with the remaining mascarpone cream. Decorate with the remaining berries, dust with powder (icing) sugar and serve.
