Happiness comes in many forms. For cake lovers, nothing makes them happier than biting into a soft, spongy and juicy cake that is ultimately loaded with decadent flavours and deliciousness. One of the most heavenly cakes I can never get enough of is swiss roll. Swiss roll is a rolled sponge cake filled with whipped cream, jam, or icing. This spongy cake is made with just a handful of eggs, flour, sugar and cream. This dessert can be made quickly once you have a pocketful of patience and tips that ease the process. Let's get started.

1. Eggs are a must

Getting a perfectly soft swiss roll is possible only when you whisk a batter using eggs. Eggs are a must for making a swiss roll at home. They help enhance the softness, taste, and flavours and add to the overall richness of the cake. However, if you still want to make an eggless swiss roll, you may substitute eggs with fresh curd. 

2. Fresh whipped cream for filling 

Always use fresh whipped cream for filling inside your cake. A perfect creaminess is something we all want in our homemade swiss rolls. Fresh whipped cream can genuinely make your swiss roll taste better and extra delicious. So you can either whip up a fresh cream at home or buy one from your nearby market. 

3. Cover the baking tray with parchment paper

Using parchment paper ensures that your cake does not stick to the bottom of the pan. In the case of a swiss roll, the batter is spread all over a baking tray instead of a baking dish, so it is necessary to cover the baking tray with parchment paper. Once your batter is ready, spread it gently and thoroughly over the paper.
