There was always a reason why I never tried swiss rolls, and the main reason was that I don’t have a pan to make it. Or maybe I am just keeping that as a reason! The fear of breaking and having an odd looking roll does put me off to try it. When I saw this recipe at several places, I wanted to try but somehow it kept going off my mind. One morning, when the kids demanded for something sweet and I suddenly remembered of this easy swiss roll, made on stove top that gets ready in just half an hour’s time! I used my homemade strawberry jam in this roll. The kids absolutely loved it and it was polished off within minutes. Off to the way how it is done… Recipe from here
Ahem ahem… please don’t think I am going for any big time course… I just used my B’s engineering book to take this picture! Since he is employed now and his books are just lying there, I put it to good use by using it as my prop, hehe…
