TOTAL TIME: 55 min
Prep: 20 min Inactive Prep: 20 min Cook: 15 min

YIELD: 8 servings

- 4 eggs
- 4 1/2 ounces caster sugar (superfine), plus 3 tablespoons for sprinkling or use icing sugar (confectioners'), for dusting
- 2 tablespoons warm water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder

For the filling:
- 6 tablespoons raspberry or strawberry jam - 8 ounces heavy cream, whipped

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Line the base of a 10 by 15-inches Swiss roll or jelly roll pan with greaseproof or parchment paper. Brush the base and sides of the pan with melted butter, and dust with flour.

3. In a large bowl or in an electric food mixer, whisk the eggs, and sugar together, until light and fluffy, and then add the water, and vanilla extract.

4. Sift in the flour and baking powder, about a third at a time, and using a large metal spoon, fold it into the egg mixture.

5. Pour the mixture gently into the prepared pan, and bake in the oven until the center of the cake is slightly springy and the edges have shrunk a little from the sides of the tin, about 12 to 15 minutes.

6. Spread out a piece of parchment paper (slightly larger than the tin in size) on a work surface and sprinkle evenly with caster sugar (this stops the roll from sticking to the paper). Turn or invert the pan onto the sugared parchment paper, and then carefully remove the tin and parchment paper from the bottom of the cake.

7. Place a slightly damp, clean tea or kitchen towel over the cake while it cools- this will prevent it from drying out and cracking when you roll it.

8. When the cake is cool, spread the jam sparingly over the cake, leaving a 1-inch border. Repeat with the whipped cream. With the longest side facing you, roll up the Swiss roll away from you, then transfer to a plate to serve. Sprinkle the cake with caster sugar or dust with icing sugar to finish.

I think you missed the baking powder or didn't rise at all, just turned out like a baked egg.
Owner Response: Thank you for pointing out the missing ingredient on that recipe. We did pull that from another source and I double checked to see if it was missing there too. It was. After comparing other classic Swiss roll recipes, this one likely needs 1 teaspoon of baking powder. We've added that to the recipe so that it is complete. Thank you again and happy baking.
