Choco Walnut Swiss Roll made with spongy cake and some amazing filling of choco truffle cream and walnuts is the perfect treat!
I love Swiss rolls. I remember growing up eating them as a child and loving them! They were one of my favorite treats. Black forest cake, buttercream pastries, cream roll (Does anyone remember those? must make them one of these days) and Swiss rolls were the things we grew up on. So when I took up the task of making this choco walnut swiss roll, I was pretty nervous and excited, but it did turn out awesome and we all loved it 🙂
I made this Swiss roll using a chiffon sponge and it was soft spongy and not very heavy, just perfect for a Swiss roll. I was reading about how the Swiss rolls originated and what gave it the name. The Swiss Roll is basically any sponge cake which is rolled and has a filling of either cream, jam or icing. Where exactly the Swiss Rolls originated from is still unclear, but they are believed to have originated from Central Europe, in most likelihood, Austria.
What I love about Swiss Rolls are the different kinds of fillings you can put into them. Just make your favorite kind of sponge cake and then fill it in with anything that fancies you. It can be just plain whipped cream or something more exotic like some roasted nuts and choco chips. Roll up the cake and you have an amazing log of dessert which you can cut and make into rolls.
I made these choco walnut Swiss Rolls to distribute them to celebrate the Mindful Meanderings birthday – it is the blog we love to participate and watch the fantastic crafty activities which she creates! The blog turns 1 and she is giving away a lovely painting and distributing these Swiss rolls for her birthday! So give the blog a visit and leave a comment wishing and do let her know that you went there via my blog!
