Chocolate Swiss Roll with Butter Cream




One of the must do items in my list. I picked up a good butter cream recipe from Tartelette, which is something I always wanted to learn, so that I can make my own comforting Swiss rolls that filled with creamy and smooth butter cream. Never really like butter cream used in most of the bakery shops here, as I know it's just a mixture of shortening/margarine and butter. That's not what I want in my homemade pastries.

Using the recipe from the same book which I made the coffee roll previously. The soft and moist sponge makes it easy to roll up the cake without the problem of cracking. Something so simple yet taste homemade is what I always go for.

Hi,

This is Fiona, thanks for your sharing on recipe and picture. Lately I have been crazy trying roll cakes. Still failure cracking. I am from KL not sure where to get the flour. Can we use superfine flour ? For this chocolate Swiss roll, can you let me know what is the measurement for the chocolate ?

Hi Fiona,

I think using Top flour should be good enough. I used 15g of cocoaa powder to change to chocolate roll cake. If you have good chocolate essence you may add 1/2 tsp to the recipe too. Hope this would help. ANything just drop by again, I will try my best to answer your questions. Happy baking, and do let me know how your chocolate roll cake turn out ok?
