hi, just wanna know if the sponge would rise up after baking. Is there anything i would need to add in if i need the sponge to rise as i am not using an oven.. thanks in advance!!

yochana said...

This sponge doesn't need any baking leavening agent because the whisking of the eggs and sugar is enough to make the sponge rise...

Hi Aunty Yochana, thanks for sharing with us this recipes. Yesterday I finally decided to try making the Black Forest Roll. But my sponge didn't manage to rise up at all. My tray is 35cm by 28cm. I've followed the instructions carefully. Could it be I din whisk the eggs and sugar enough or I did not mix in the flour and oil properly?

yochana said...

Hi cuen,

I think your problem is that you have deflated the eggs...meaning the air escapes while mixing thus preventing the cake from rising.
You must fold the flour and oil in gently taking care not to deflate the eggs. It's better to have some streaks of egg white left in the batter rather than deflating it.

Hi Aunty Yochana, I tried the second time. This time it manage to rise a little bit but still cannot make it. I will try them again, folding in more carefully. Thanks so much. =)

Aunty,

I tried this recipe, and my cake was well risen, about 1 inch thick.
But two problems, the texture was chewy and the chocolate flavour and texture was not as pronounced as I see from ur pic. I used Van Houten cocoa powder.

Will overbeating the eggs cause chewiness??? Should I increase my cocoa content?

yochana said...

Hi Wendy,

You have overmixed your mixture which causes the chewiness..

wendyywy said...

Aunty,

The whole mixture or just the eggs?

I beat the eggs until they became almost tripled in volume. I folded in the flour using a spatula until just combined, with even some flour bits left.

I tried 2nd time, this time, I beat the eggs slightly more than double. Not chewy, but denser with smaller air holes, still risen, but about half the height only. They looked more deflated after I folded in the flour compared with first attempt.

wendyywy said...

Aunty,

Should the cake be 1 inch thick or lesser???

yochana said...

Hi Wendy,

It should be about 1/2" only cos it's a swiss roll.

yochana said...

Hi Wendy,

Use small eggs and if not , cut down to 4 eggs and use your hands to fold in the flour.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I just tried making it over the weekend. The cake turn out fine but I can't seem to get the cream right.

I bought the whipped cream that came in a small carton. Cant remember the brand though. It was just more towards a watery texture. I do not know what to do with it cos it was not in a creamy texture, and I was afraid that it will spoil the cake so i use jam instead.

However, I definitely prefer swiss roll with cream filling so what went wrong with mine? Do I have to whisk it? Please advice.

Thank you.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi anonymous.

Yes you have to whip up your whipping cream till fluffy before spreading onto your swiss roll.

Hi there! I just made this swiss roll. The cake risen to about 1/2 thick and looks just fine but it is quite dry and little chewy. When I rolled it, it broke. Did I over bake it or not adding enough oil? I used canola oil because that is all I have at home. I baked it for about 13 minutes. Please let me know as I intend to try it again. Thank you so much. You have such a wonderful website!

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi california mom,

you probably could have overbaked it...
