Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake




3/4 cup of all-purpose flour

1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

4 large eggs, room temperature

3/4 cup of granulated sugar

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

For the filling:

1 cup of heavy cream

2 tablespoons of powdered sugar

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract



  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a jelly roll pan (10×15 inches) with parchment paper and lightly grease it.
  2. In a small bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs for about 5 minutes until they’re pale and thick. Gradually add the granulated sugar, and keep beating until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Drizzle in the vegetable oil and vanilla extract, and mix until well combined.
  5. Gently fold in the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, taking care not to deflate the eggs.
  6. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan, using a spatula to smooth the top.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.
  8. While the cake is baking, lay out a clean kitchen towel and sprinkle it with cocoa powder. This will prevent the cake from sticking when you roll it.
  9. Once the cake is done, immediately invert it onto the prepared towel, peel off the parchment paper, and roll the cake up in the towel from the short end. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. While the cake is cooling, make the filling. Whip the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together until stiff peaks form.
  11. Carefully unroll the cooled cake, spread the whipped cream evenly over the cake, leaving a slight border on all sides to prevent spilling over when rolling.
  12. Roll the cake back up, using the towel to help create a tight roll.
  13. Wrap the Swiss roll in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.
  14. To serve, trim off the edges for a clean look and dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
  15. Slice and enjoy your homemade Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake!
