Strawberry Jam Swiss Roll

Makes 1 Swiss Roll

Egg yolks
Egg whites
Cake flour
Whole egg
Warm Milk
Strawberry Jam
As according
  1. Melt the butter in a pot and blend the sifted cake flour into it.

  2. Add the whole egg and egg yolks bit by bit and mix into the butter batter. When this is done, stir in the milk and combine well.

  3. In another bowl, whipped up the egg whites and sugar till stiff peaks are formed. Gently fold the egg whites mixture to the cake batter and blend well.

  4. Layered the swiss roll pan with Greaseproof paper and pour the batter into it. Make sure that the batter is poured evenly.

  5. Bring to bake at 180 degree Celsius for 12 mins or when turn golden brown.

  6. Allow to cool before rolling the cake up. Spread the jam and roll the cake up, chill in the fridge for 30 mins before serving.

I bought a bottle of Strawberry Jam last week and till today, it is still full sitting in my fridge. It's not that I don't like Strawberry jam but this jam that I bought from Isetan was kind of sour. I think because it is low in sugar content thus, that makes it sourish?

Was thinking of trying to use up this jam asap else it might just sit inside the fridge for years! Thus, decided to bake a swiss roll. This recipe was adapted from Flower Bee . The cake is truly smooth BUT my cake did not came out to how Flower Bee ones did :(

I had no problem rolling it up but if only it would have the effects like the ones Flower Bee baked, it would be perfect! Hubby said that mine had the kind of Cheesecake texture, erm without the cheese taste. You know!!! I want it spongy and soft not that kind! Sigh, is it because I did not add in Cream of Tartar? Why why tell me why :'(

Anyway, I seriously need to get myself a proper Swiss roll pan. I am using my cookie pan to bake swiss rolls so that is why my swiss rolls are always fat? LOL!
