Chocolate Swiss roll recipe

Even the simplest desserts, like a Swiss roll, may be as visually appealing as they are tasty. But someone went out of their way to make the cake roll, typically loaded with jam and vanilla frosting, into a chocolate and cream treat. Swiss log cake, like the real cake, was developed in the United States, but that hasn’t stopped us from enjoying it. Despite being packed with wonderful cream rather than jam, the dense chocolate cake manages to be light and moist.

Chocolate Swiss roll suggestions

Adding eggs may sometimes ruin a recipe if you aren’t careful, so don’t rush to include them. Be careful not to smash the cake when you wrap it up. Rolling it while it’s still warm may help get it just right, but it will cause the cream to deflate. To keep the whipped cream from disintegrating, corn starch is added. Serve with a cup of tea or coffee and a large slice, dusted with flour.

Baking and slicing a rich chocolate Swiss roll into thick slices is a gorgeous delicacy that can be shared with guests over a cup of tea or coffee.
