How to Make a Swiss Roll Cake
This elegant and simple cake starts with the most basic cake recipes – chocolate sponge cake! I have a separate video recipe for the chocolate sponge cake if you want more in-depth instructions. This chocolate cake recipe is great because it’s malleable so it won’t break when filled and rolled. I recommend using only sponge cakes for roulades and swiss cake rolls because of that. It’s also on the drier side, which works for the recipe in this case. The dry cake is perfect for soaking with raspberry liqueur and will hold the whipped cream filling very well.
Important note: make sure to roll the chocolate cake as soon as you remove it from the oven! Just dust the top of the cake with confectioner’s sugar to prevent it from sticking to your kitchen towel. Roll the cake up and let it cool completely. Once it’s cooled, fill it and then roll it back up the same way it was rolled originally.
For the frosting, I went with a European whipped cream frosting! It’s super easy to make and made with sweetened condensed milk, butter, cream cheese and heavy cream! It’s the perfect complement to the richness of the chocolate sponge cake and sweet berries. Check out my step-by-step video tutorial for a more in-depth video recipe.
