MIXED FRUIT SWISS ROLL...for 3 years of Blogging!

Mixed Fruit Swiss Roll

Please don't go away reading the title,pretty please!I promise you ,there will not be any speeches given on this special day. Even then, I do have to say that I'm very happy about it and I owe a big thanks to you , dear readers! I haven't been participating in any group baking that I used to for the last 2 months,  I promise you, I shall return to it very soon! :-)
Mixed Fruit Swiss Roll

Jam rolls/ Swiss rolls has been something which my aunts used to bake. We never rolled anything  sweet at home except for these yummilicious Coffee Cream Wheel .This was the time when I never quite liked anything with jam in it, so I stayed away from any such rolls. Later, when my taste buds developed I had a liking towards all these jammy treats especially My Favourite Jam Tarts  , Jam Filled Cookies and also Bakewell Tart .

When I think of it , all the veggies that I disliked when young is my favourite, now! Bittergourd was something I disliked terribly and I love it with all my heart,now! Have you observed such stuff about yourselves? I bet there are plenty for you to tell me! :-)

MIXED FRUIT SWISS ROLL
Ingredients:
3 eggs
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c -1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cornflour
5 tbsp mixed fruit jam, stirred well

Method:
Pre-heat the oven to 180C and line a 9x13 inch/ swiss roll tin.

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs & sugar for 12 mins, non stop.Add the vanilla and beat for another 1 minute.Add the dry ingredients and fold it in.Pour into a prepared tin and bake for 10-15 mins or until the top is golden and is springy to touch.Pull it out of the oven and unmould it onto a tea towel sprinkled with sugar.Roll it away from you, along with the towel. Hold it there for 10-15 second.Open the roll and let it cool completely.Spread the jam and roll once again.
Slice and serve!


Verdict: I have lost the number of times I have used this basic sponge recipe given to me by Amma. It's so versatile.You can roll it, layer it,mould it or better still, eat it plain! This roll was very very soft and we really liked it!

Ria, first congratulations on your three year anniversary. I love that this sponge is fat free, not even oil, so i am going to try it out very soon.
There are a few veggies that i never touched as a kid, eggplant/brinjal being one of them. Ever since i started cooking for myself i found out how easy it is to cook it and especially since marriage my husband loves it. So now i eat it all the time :)
Love your little anecdotes along with the recipes, so i wouldn't mind a long anniversary speech too!

Ria,

I am kinda new to your space... was soo glad to see some of those easy dessert ideas.. The moment I saw jam roll recipe, I wanted to try it.. But I was bit confused about "1/2 c -1 tbsp flour" part in the ingredint section. What does that means?

Ria Mathew said...

Sanku Pushpam, Welcome to this lil space of mine :)

It means 1/2 cup minus 1 tbsp of flour.So take 1/2 cup of flour and then take out 1 tbsp from it. Then replace that 1 tbsp with 1 tbsp cornflour.

Cornflour makes the sponge lighter :)
