Excellent recipe, love it! I also spread with cherry jam before cream.

I added a little Cream of Tartar and made a 2/3 version as my pan was smaller. Good texture for rolling, no splits!

I followed the recipe exactly for the batter but I didn't add the filling immediately. I let the cake stand for about an hour whilst I did something else. By the time I tried to put the filling in the cake had degenerated into a sticky mess which was very difficult to work. The final result looked a bit of a train wreck with a poor texture to the sponge. The flavor was OK but I have much better recipes for swiss rolls which I will go back to using in the future. My other recipes have much higher flour content which is why I think they probably have a more "cakey" texture

Didn't really like this recipe. First one I tried for swiss roll but I found it was too thin, should have doubled the recipe. But for a quick and easy recipe it was good enough since I didn't really want to use all the other recipes that you have to separate the eggs for.

i needed a wand cake for my boys 5th birthday magic party. this cake was super easy and very tasty, everyone agreed. i added strawberries and used vanilla sugar instead of castor! i made three cakes and joined them together then covered in dark and white chocolate pieces.

This was not as rich as some Swiss rolls I have had, but then it took much less time and many fewer eggs and other ingredients. For a 'need it quick' recipe this is a good pick. I did find the chocolate base a bit thin and mine stuck a bit to the pan but after trimming up the edges and dusting with cocoa powder, the finished product looked and tasted quite nice. I added a touch of baileys to the whipped cream for extra zing.
