It's a rare occasion i go back North Wales to visit my family. And when i do visit, they moan about my presence! Anyways, i thought i'd show off my baking skills and so i decided to rummage around the kitchen cupboards to find some ingredients. I found some main ingredients to bake a swiss roll and i started to get my bake on.
4 Eggs (3 egg yolks x 4 egg whites)
70g Plain Flour
50ml Whipped Cream
25g Vegetable Oil
1. Sift the plain flour and set aside.
2. Separate the egg whites and yolks.
3. Whisk the yolks until a lemon colour and add 10g of sugar whilst still whisking.
4. Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks and add in 10g of sugar whilst still whisking.
5. Add the yolks and sifted flour into a bowl and gently mix the batter.
6. Add the vegetable oil into the batter (don't ask why, mother insisted - makes it smoother apparently).
7. Add the whisked egg whites into the batter in 2 separate stages and gently fold with a spatula.
8. Once mixed, pour into a baking tray aligned with greaseproof papar (i cannot remember the measurement of the tray however it was A4 size - maybe a little bigger).
9. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and bake for 10 - 15 minutes.
10. Insert a skewer into the centre and ensure the skewer comes out clean.
11. Remove tray from oven and turn the sponge layer upside down onto a cooling rack.
12. Gently peel off the greaseproof paper.
13.Whilst you leave it to cool - whip up some cream!
14. Lay the sponge layer onto a new piece of greaseproof paper and spread the cream evenly.
15. Roll the sponge layer.. oh no wait.. cut the sponge layer into bitesize pieces and ENJOY!
Let me know if you try this out!
