Another really quick post from me!
(Previously posted to my baking only blog whatyougotcooking.wordpress.com)
This is just a fun little cake to make.
It’s a standard Swiss roll recipe, coloured into a rainbow!
For a single roll (I doubled the recipe and made two):
2 whole eggs
50g caster sugar
50g plain flour
Food colours! (Liquid preferable so as not to knock the air out of the mixture when folding in the colour)
Preheat your oven to 160degrees (fan assisted) and line you tin with grease proof paper.
Begin by whisking the egg and sugar together in a mixing bowl, you want to so this for upwards of 5 minutes, until the mixture becomes pale, light and leaves a trail.
Sift in the flour and fold gently.
Divide the mix evenly into as many bowls as you have colours, mix each colour so there are no streaks.
Now using either piping bags or just a spoon carefully fill your tin with the lines of different colour cake mixture.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, depending upon the depth of your tin.
Once baked remove from the oven and making sure to be extra careful with the hot tin and cake roll the sponge up tightly and pop in a cool place to rest.
After about an hour unroll your sponge, fill it with jam and cream and roll back up into shape!
