Chocolate Swiss roll with blueberries filling

Chocolate Swiss roll


I made swiss roll not more than 3 times but all were failed. When i know Aspiring Bakers #9 calling us to challenge making Swiss roll, i quickly search for a 100% success recipe, and i got to know the best recipe is from 孟老师 “美味蛋糕卷”.








Chocolate Swiss roll


I don't own this book but I saw in 茄子's blog. Eventhough i have little hiccup as I overbeated the meringue and was hard to fold with egg yolk mixture. But the Swiss roll came out still perfect, easy to roll and no crack.



Chocolate Swiss roll with blueberries filling
(recipe souce : basic sponge adapted from 孟老师 “美味蛋糕卷”)
* make a 11" x 14" (28cm x 36cm) Swiss roll

Ingredients
26g unsalted butter, melted
84g egg yolk
26g caster sugar
Chocolate Swiss roll3tsp cocoa powder
126g egg white
63g caster sugar
47g cake flour

Filling
Blueberries filling
Non-dairy whipped cream

Method
1. Whisk egg yolks and sugar over a pot of hot water till thicken and pale in color.
2. Add cocoa powder into egg yolk mixture, stir well and set aside.
3. In another clean bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until foamy, gradually add in sugar and beat till glossy and soft peaks form.
4. Take one-third of egg whites mixture to mix with the egg yolk mixture using a hand whisk. Then fold in the remaining egg white using a spatula until well combined.
5. Gently fold the sifted flour (in 3 batches) into the batter.  Add in melted butter and gently combine well.
6. Pour the batter into baking tray lined with baking paper. Spread evenly with a scraper. Gently knock the tray on tabletop to remove air bubbles trapped in the batter.
7. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for around 13mins.
8. When cake is done, remove from pan and place on a wire rack and put in a big plastic bag to cool.
9. To assemble Swiss roll, turned cooled sponge onto a clean work surface. Peel off parchment paper, spread evenly layer of whipping cream over top of sponge. Follow by spread a layer of blueberries filling.
10. Gently roll up the sponge to make a Swiss roll. Wrap with cling wrap and chill in the fridge to allow the Swiss roll to set. Slice to serve.

I have bought this cookbook (though I am illiterate of Chinese). This cookbook comes with two CDs, and after viewing the CDs only you know that it should be "oh do like this, oh do like that". Maybe I should copy the CDs and send it to you Sonia.
