Swiss Roll Recipe

Swiss Roll Recipe

Swiss Roll cakes originated in Europe in the nineteenth century around the time the Battenberg and sponge was created and is still a firm favourite today. Our recipe is a Mary Berry recipe which we have slightly adapted and used our white scone mix, you can actually make four of these cakes from one bag of our mix.

This Swiss Roll is dairy free but that of course goes out the window when you add the cream. If you just add a dairy free cream or just jam you can have a dairy free version. The most important thing is to use a really good jam and we use a delicious raspberry jam which is made by Philip in the Farm Shop in Tinahely. Its a fabulous place and if you are ever in this neck of the woods do call in!
