What can you do if you have kids to take care of, one day my son just came back from school and said today i want this cake and it’s to day not tomorrow because I have been giving excuses for a long time .
After I finish I was even more excited than my son and baking sometimes is a therapeutic session for you inside and out. Below is my recipe for you to try for your kids.
• 4 eggs, separated
• 125g self raising flour
• 125g castor sugar
• 30ml milk, heated
• 25ml castor sugar
• 2 teaspoon green coloring ( food coloring)
• 2 teaspoon blue coloring ( food coloring)
Apricot jam for filling
Icing sugar , for dusting
Line the base of a baking tray with baking paper. Coat the paper sides with cooking spray and set asides.
1. Whisk the egg whites in a food mixer until peak stuff begun to form.
2 . Add the castor sugar , 15 ml at a time , beat well after each addition.
3 . With the mixture running, add the eggs yolk and whisk until the mixture is light and creamy in color.
4 . Sift the flour into a bowl and add the flour alternately with the milk to the egg mixture and add green and blue food coloring. Adjust until your desire color is showing.
5. Spoon the batter into the prepared tray and bake for 8 minutes.
6. Cut a piece of baking paper slightly large than the tin.
7. Place the paper on a tea towel and sprinkle with the 25 ml castor sugar .
9. Invert the baked Swiss roll onto the sugared paper
10. Peel away the paper lining and cut away 5mm from all the edges of the Swiss roll . This removes the crisp edge and makes it easy to roll.
10. Using palette knife , make a shallow cut halfway into Swiss roll , 2.5cm from and parallel to the end and to be rolled
11. Grip the paper with the other hand , working away from you, roll up the Swiss roll for few seconds.
12. Unroll the Swiss roll to cool down.
13. Spread the apricot jam over Swiss roll with 2.5 com of the end.
14. Roll into shape and dust it with icing sugar.
