Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 1/2 cup : Self rising flour (or substitute it with 1/2 cup plain flour sifted with 1 tsp of baking powder)
  2. 1/2 cup : powdered sugar, divided
  3. 3 large eggs: at room temperature with whites and yolks separated
  4. 2 tbsp : melted butter
  5. 1 tsp : vanilla essence


  1. In a deep bowl, add the whites and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Beat till stiff peaks form with a whisk/ hand blender/ stand mixer.
  2. Now set this aside until needed. In another bowl, take the yolks and add the remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar and beat with a whisk until it's pale and yellow in color.
  3. Now combine both the whipped yolks and whites together and beat again for a couple of mins. Later add the flour, melted butter and vanilla essence. Beat again until it is completely combined.
  4. Now line a baking sheet preferably 15 × 9 inch pan with parchment paper and transfer the batter on to it. Spread it evenly and tap a couple of times to release the air bubbles.
  5. Now bake this in a preheated oven at 140°C / 284°F approximately for exactly 12 mins. While it's still warm cut the uneven edges and invert it over to a wet kitchen towel. Peel off the parchment paper and roll gently.
  6. Place this in the refrigerator for 10 mins. Later unwrap the roll carefully and spread jam/ preserve of your choice, if the jam is too thick to spread, heat in a microwave for couple of seconds, then continue spreading.
  7. Once the jam is spread roll and slice. A perfect Swiss roll is ready to dig in.
