Captivating Cheese Swiss Roll

I made these especially for my parents to celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary in a small way. Cos my papa is mildly diabetic and mummy doesn't fancy anything too sweet, I searched the Elegant Swiss Roll book and came upon this cheese swiss roll. I adapted it to make the roll seen below and the result is a savoury sweet roll with the aroma of Italian herbs.


6 nos. eggs
120 gm caster sugar
1 tsp Italian herbs seasoning
130 gm plain flour
10 gm parmesan cheese powder
80 gm salted butter (melted)
A sprinkle of grated cheddar cheese to
decorate the top of the sponge batter .

Filling is plain buttercream.


Pre-heat oven to 200 degree C and line a 10" by 14" baking pan.

Using a mixer, beat eggs and sugar till light, fluffy and thick.

Add in the Italian herbs, flour, parmesan cheese and melted butter and mix untill well combined.

Spread mixture onto baking pan and sprinkle with cheedar cheese.

Bake for 10 mins. and leave to cool.

Turn cake onto sheet of paper and spread with buttercream filling.

Roll gently from the longer side using paper to guide roll.
