Nothing goes down better with an afternoon cup of tea than a slice of Swiss roll. Keep it simple with a jam filling and a smattering of caster sugar on the top for the perfect treat no one can refuse.

Swiss roll recipe


75g self raising flour
3 eggs
75g caster sugar

3 tbsp jam / lemon curd

UPDATE: I have remade this recipe to be gluten free, it worked fine with the simple substitute of Gluten free self raising flour. No addition xanthium gum needed.


  1. Light oven to gas mark 6 / 200°C
  2. Line the tin with grease-proof paper
  3. Crack eggs into a large bowl and add sugar
  4. Whisk eggs until thick and light in colour
  5. Do the test to see if the mixture has been whisked enough
  6. Fold in flour using a metal spoon
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown
  8. Sprinkle sugar over new piece of greasepaint paper
  9. Tip cooked Swiss roll onto sugared paper
  10.  Quickly cut the edges off
  11.  Cover sponge with jam
  12.  Roll, use the paper to help you
  13.  Place into container and allow to cool.
Soft and sweet with a sprinkling of sugar. There is no better way to enjoy an afternoon sit down and a cup of tea, than with a slice of homemade swiss roll.

  1. This sound wonderful and so simple. I have never attempted making a swiss roll before, but I have some fresh made jam that is screaming to be used! #Blogstravaganza
