Sponge Cake Roll/Swiss Roll/Jelly Roll

Swiss roll is made by rolling a thin sheet of sponge cake spread with fillings into a log shape. Usually served in slices.Fillings can be done with whipped cream,jam or with both. I did with whipped cream and chopped fresh strawberries.You can also spread with chocolate ganache.Really this is an amazing recipe.These swiss rolls are very delicate to roll,so be sure not to overcook the sponge, any crispness or hardness will make it liable to crack when rolled.Swiss rolls should be eaten within a few days of making. If cream is used in the filling, the roll should be stored in the fridge in an airtight container.
