I have a few old tricks that make this classic cake perfect every time...Once the sponge is cooked, turn it out onto a clean tea towel that's covered with caster sugar. Spread with warm jam and roll in the cloth.
HORRIBLE RECIPE!!! Did not work for me!! Avoid! Worked for ages and found myself a thin disgusting cake that not only tasted bad but due to the thinness stuck to the paper and wouldnt get off. I was cooking for family and they were all excited to eat a nice cake but it turned out...as you can tell horrible. SO AVOID. - 03 Mar 2015
This is the first time I have made swiss roll and this is a great recipe to start with. Very simple to make. My children wanted it with custard and it went down a treat. Nothing left for the next day. Delicious! ! Thank you for this recipe. - 02 Dec 2013
