Kiwi White Roll

This afternoon I finally got the time for myself. Means I'm back baking for myself! I have been quite busy baking for visitors and others instead for the past 2 weeks. Well, what's in my mind today....its swissroll. It has been quite a long time since I baked a swissroll. And I've finally got the book for swissroll by Kevin Chai.
Here is it, the very first recipe from the book, but with a little modification...;D

I admit that the swissroll look ugly but it does taste wonderful. I need a 2nd attempt to improve on the rolling though...;p
Here's the recipe (adapted from "Elegant Swiss Roll by Kevin Chai")
3 egg whites
45g sugar

(B) 4 eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
100g Plain flour
60g Butter (melted)

(C) 120g Fresh Cream (whipped)
1 kiwi (peeled, quartered)
~ Preheat oven at 180'C, grease 10x14" baking tin, line with baking paper and grease on the paper again.
~ Beat (A) until stiff peaks form. Spoon into piping bag fitted with round nozzles and pipe onto the tin in parallel lines (2cm apart)
~ In a mixing bowl beat eggs and sugar from (B) until light and fluffy. Add in essence, mix well.
~ Gently fold in plain flour, add in melted butter and mix well.
~ Spread mixture over the piped white meringue. Bake at 180'C for 10 minutes. Leave to cool.
~ Transfer cake onto a paper (top facing up), spread with whipped cream and arange the kiwi on the cream (as pic. below). Roll gently from narrow end, and refrigerate before cutting.

Cut into slices and serve..:) I should have spread all the whipping cream *sigh*..:( Worry that it might have too much cream in the center so I just spread half of the portion, and that the kiwi doesn't stick to the cake after cutting. So if you are making this, do remember to spread the whole portion of the whipped cream in it.

Here's one of the projects I've been working on last week. A football/soccer for a bityhday boy..:)

The piping were really stressful, but a good practice..;D

Happy Baking!!


  1. Very special! Didn't know can use whipping cream can use as part of a Swiss roll cake. :) I guess it's the special soft texture of the cake which made it harder to roll. No worries it, I am sure it'll be even better the next time. I bet Grace is all praise on your cake. :) Thanks for the lovely recipe. ;)

  2. i think your swiss roll looks's not easy to roll the cake and your soccer cake is just that buttercream?

  3. I have yet to do a swiss roll, must try out one day. Wor, that birthday football cake look so beautiful, well done friend!

  4. Now that's my kind of swiis roll! I love it. Wow what a fantastic soccer ball or is it football?

  5. Reese, listen carefully, the football cake is A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I would not have one-tenth of your patience, seriously.

  6. I understand to get the two color for the sponge roll is not easy as I've just made something similar too. I need more practice on that as well! Anyway, your swiss roll looks soft and very refreshing cake that filled with kiwi! Nice!

  7. ~ Hi Bee Bee, thank you..:) You know me well and how I work on the swissroll...;p *stress*

    ~ lena, yea, its not easy to roll a swissroll. And yes, it was buttercream I used in the soccer ball cake.

    ~ Sonia, thank you...:)

    ~ Lyndsey, in Malaysia we call it football...but I think the proper one is soccer..;p

  8. ~ Hi Quinn, thanks!! One thing for sure...I fell in love with pipings...haha!

    ~ Kitchen Corner, it's really stress and worry when I try to bake a swissroll everytime..;p But I like eating it..:)

  9. Reese, you had done a good job on the swiss roll, it looks delicious ya. And the football cake, impressive!

  10. Wow, your soccer cake is SO beautiful!

  11. i like the piped meringue on the skin. does it make it harder to roll?

  12. ~ Jess @ Bakericious, thank you so much..:)

    ~ Small Small Baker, Thank you!!

    ~ crustabakes, I like the meringue too. Yea, rolling this was alittle difficult coz the meringue may breaks. After rolling have to chill it before cutting.

    ~ petite nyonya, thank you..:)

  13. The kiwi rolls look so light, fluffy and yummy! And you did a great job in piping! It's absolutely gorgeous!
