Swiss Roll

Ingredients :

  • Plain flour : 85 gm
  • Cornflour : 1 tbsp
  • Baking powder : 1½ tsp
  • Egg white : 4
  • Salt : a pinch
  • Caster sugar : 160 gm
  • Egg yolks : 4
  • Cold water : 1 tbsp
  • Lemon juice : 1 tsp

Pre-heat the oven to 180° C. Then, grease a Swiss Roll tin and keep it aside. Sift the flour with baking powder. Then, beat the egg whites and salt until it turns stiff. Gradually, add 3 tbsp sugar and beat it again. Fold-in one more tbsp sugar. Beat the egg yolks, gradually adding the water, lemon juice and remaining sugar until the mixture drops from the spoon in an unbroken pale yellow ribbon. Carefully, fold-in the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture. Then, fold-in the flour mixture. Pour the batter into the greased tin and bake it for 12 mins.

Sprinkle a sheet of grease-proof paper with caster sugar. When the Swiss roll is baked, turn the tin upside down onto the sugar sprinkled paper. Remove the  lining paper as quickly as possible. Remove the crisp edges of the roll with a sharp knife. Then, spread the semi thick warm jam on the roll. Roll tightly and keep it aside. Cut it into pieces.
