Swirl Cake Roll Recipe


Here's what you'll need to create your own Swirl Cake Roll:

  • For the Cake:
    • 4 large eggs
    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • A pinch of salt
    • Food coloring (optional)
  • For the Filling:
    • 1 cup whipped cream
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
    • Fresh berries (optional, for garnish)


Follow these simple steps to create your Swirl Cake Roll:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and grease lightly.
  2. Prepare the cake batter by beating the eggs and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into the egg mixture. Gently fold until just combined.
  4. Divide the batter into separate bowls if using food coloring. Add a few drops of coloring to each bowl and gently mix until desired colors are achieved.
  5. Pour the colored batter into the prepared jelly roll pan, creating a swirled pattern.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the cake is lightly golden and springs back when touched.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare the filling by whipping the cream and powdered sugar together until soft peaks form.
  8. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately invert onto a clean kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar.
  9. Carefully peel off the parchment paper and roll the cake, along with the towel, starting from one short end.
  10. Let the rolled cake cool completely on a wire rack.
  11. Once cooled, unroll the cake and spread the whipped cream filling evenly over the surface.
  12. Gently roll the cake back up, this time without the towel, and transfer to a serving platter.
  13. Chill the cake roll in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
  14. Slice the cake roll into thick rounds and garnish with fresh berries if desired.
  15. Serve and enjoy your beautifully swirled creation!
