I was searching for some Japanese desserts on YouTube and came across this easy to whip up Coffee Swiss Roll ...no baking involved and gosh it was the most interesting item I came across. Making a swiss roll using a frying pan !!!! Gosh... I need to make it straight away since I have the ingredients ...watching it online makes it so much simpler though I don't understand a word of Japanese LOL! I should have taken up japanese language as a third language while in school ! Now the brains doesn't work fast , so learning Japanese now may be tough , though at times I think 25 ! Japanese called this ' rolled-cake' . Watch this video clip and you tell me whether you are sold !
This coffee swiss roll is ideal for me...just the right sweetness . I tweaked the recipe a bit by adding Baileys Irish Cream to the whip cream and replaced instant coffee to instant nescafe...it was so good...nescafe flavored swiss roll goes well with the Baileys flavored cream filling and the strawberries makes it lips-smacking good. Great dessert for us. No butter or oil involved so it is a very healthy dessert. I used non-dairy cream , not sweet , and the Baileys in the cream filling makes it a winner alright :)
I did not do a good job on the rolling though...I sucked at it so please excuse the unsightly rolled cake :p but the taste is fantastic !!! The swiss cake is light soft and fluffy . WB and myself have three helpings ..... I was watching the Korean drama and gorging myself on this delicious Japanese rolled cake. Thumbs up or rather trotters up for the Piggies family LOL!
light and fluffy swiss roll.......
the texture is better than those baked ones..
Baked ones can be compact at times
