Creamy Strawberry Swiss Roll

It's been a while since I bake any cake. Recently I bought again few different kind and shape of baking pan .I plan to bake something simple and easy with the new baking pan.At last I decided to choose a Swiss Roll recipe from Agnes Chang "I Can Bake"..These days strawberry is pretty cheap due to the prices have dropped so low .Farmers in Florida was destroying the good and bountiful strawberry because it seems cheaper to let the fruit spoil than ship it to market.You must wonder why,right? You can read the news HERE!!
Well instead of using plain flour I replaced with cake flour.In another words I alter her recipe slightly to suit my taste.Actually this is my second time making Swiss roll.My 1st attempted Swiss roll I used butter but this recipe no butter needed!! The down side is I forget to trim off the crusty edge before roll up.Overall this Swiss roll texture and taste is really great.It's smooth ,soft and moisture!!










Ingredients:

150 gm cake flour,sifted
4 eggs
100 gm granulated sugar
2 drops of Grenadine or red syrup
1/2 tsp strawberry essence *optional*

Strawberry filling:
2 cup whipping cream + 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup fresh strawberry,diced

Method:

1:Pre-heat oven to 325 F.Prepared line the base of 30X30 cm or 12 x 12 pan with parchment paper.(I used 10x8 pan)
2:Whisk eggs in mixer until frothy,add in sugar slowly and beat till thick stiff peaks form.
3:Add in essence and coloring,beat until well combined.Slowly add in flour and fold into the mixture .
4:Pour mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes or until cooked and springy.Removed cake from oven,trim the crusty edges and place a same size parchment paper on the table before turn the cake on to it ,the let it cool before spreading the filling.
5:Meanwhile,whisk whipping cream until form stiff peak form.Wash and cut fresh strawberry,set aside.
6:Spread cream all over the sponge cake evenly before sprinkle with cut strawberry.Remove the parchment paper and carefully roll up the cake tightly.Use saran wrap to wrap the roll up cake before store in fridge for 2 hours.
7:Cut cake and serve chill.

I tried making swiss roll a few time but they didn't come out right. It cracks when I tried to roll it. You turn out beautifully. I have to try it out again using your recipe. Yes strawberry is cheap now but they taste bad. They were hard and not sweet at all. I still have some in the fridge and Carlos refused to eat it :(

Angies:
thank you:)

icook4fun:
thank you:) maybbe you can try use cake flour instead of all purpose flour..I think cake flour is smoother ,fine and soft.it's easy to roll,won't easy crack..Strawberry at our local market are quite sweet and pretty..I guess maybe some fruit are not from a upper class grade selection..maybe you can throw some sugar..good luck!
