Vegan Swiss roll with yellow cake and fruit preserves. Easy Swiss roll Cake. Vegan Soy-free Recipe. makes 1 9 by 13 inch baking sheet or 8 inch cake pan
Swiss rolls are rolled up sponge cakes rolled up with jam, marmalade, whipped cream, or frosting. I love this simple yellow cake and made it into a swill roll a few times. On the day I took the pictures, I only had a spicy orange marmalade. so in the pictures, you can barely see the filled up spicy marmalade. So I made some again with plum berry jam today! The swiss roll tastes amazing. Moist and soft yellow cake, rolled up with some marmalade. The almond extract adds an amazing flavor to this cake.
If you are like me, you would most likely not want to go through the headache of trying to roll up the cake without it cracking. With care that can be done, but you know, with care and it still might crack when you slice! So as well just slice and layer like a layered yule log. Slice into equal rectangles and layer with your favorite preserve or frosting. Or just make the yellow cake into a cake pan or loaf! The cake smells amazing while baking and tastes great too. Add your favorite frosting and done.
Sssh.. Using neutral color marmalade also makes the Swiss roll look cleaner 😉 don’t judge me by the rolling. Rolling things patiently and me are not the best of friends 🙂 . Make this Vegan swiss roll Cake.
