Prep Time: 30 minutes

Makes: 10-12 slices


For Simple Syrup:
Sugar – 1/3 cup
Water – 1/3 cup
Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
Vanilla – 2 tsp

For Sponge Cake:
All purpose Flour – 6 Tbsp
Corn Starch – 6 Tbsp
Sugar – 6 Tbsp (divided 3 + 3)
Eggs – 5 Large, separated into yolks and whites
Vanilla – 1 tsp
Butter – for greasing pan
All purpose Flour – 1 Tbsp for dusting pan
Powdered Sugar – 1 Tbsp for dusting
Your choice of filling – Jam, Jelly, Whipped Cream, Nutella, Chocolate, etc

Method: (Preheat Oven 375F / 190C)

1. For Simple Syrup: In a small saucepan on medium heat, mix Sugar and Water and cook until mixture starts to boil and Sugar is completely dissolved.
2. Remove from heat and mix in Lemon Juice and Vanilla. Keep aside to cool.
3. Butter the bottom and sides of a 10×15 inch Jelly Roll Pan. Line with Parchment Paper cut to the size of the pan. Butter the Parchment Paper.
4. Lightly dust with All purpose Flour to coat all sides and remove excess flour. Keep pan aside.
5. Sift together All purpose Flour and Corn Starch and keep aside.
6. In a large bowl, beat Egg Yolks and 3 Tbsp Sugar until smooth, creamy and light yellow (approx 5 minutes). Add Vanilla and mix through.
7. In another large bowl, beat Egg Whites until soft peaks form. Hand blender works well.
8. Add 3 Tbsp Sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. Mixture should not fall out of bowl if turned upside down.
9. Add 1/3 Egg Whites into Egg Yolk mixture and gently fold in.
10. Add 1/2 Flour/Corn Starch mixture and continue to gently fold in.
11. Add 1/3 Egg Whites and continue to fold in.
12. Add remaining Flour/Corn Starch mixture and continue to fold in.
13. Add remaining Egg Whites and gently fold in until entire batter is evenly mixed.
14. Pour batter onto prepared pan and spread gently and evenly. Do not press hard or batter will deflate.
15. Bake cake for 6-8 minutes until light golden in color and firm.
16. Remove cake from pan (with parchment paper) and place on a cooling rack until completely cool to the touch.
17. Lightly dust a second piece of parchment paper (slightly larger than cake) with Powdered Sugar.
18. Flip cooled cake onto the new parchment paper and gently peel off the old parchment paper.
19. With a pastry brush, brush on cooled Simple Syrup evenly over the top and sides of the cake.
20. Spread a light layer of your choice of filling.
21. Starting from the side closest to you, start to roll the cake using the parchment paper. Gently peel back the parchment paper as you keep rolling (some small cracks may form at the beginning.). Swiss Roll should be placed with the seam on the bottom.
22. Swiss Roll tastes best at room temperature but must be stored in the refrigerator in a air tight container or plastic wrap. Can be made a day in advance.
