Black Forest Swiss Roll Cake

Swiss roll cake is my classic childhood favorite dessert. Swiss roll cake is a sponge cake topped with whipped cream and rolled into a log. You can find this cake in many different flavors and they are all irresistible and absolutely delicious.

This cake roll recipe has the Black Forest cake twist by adding cherries to the filling. It's rich and chocolaty yet fluffy and light. Cherries add extra texture and slight sourness to the cake and chocolate ganache wraps up all the flavours together.

Roll cake looks hard to achieve, but attention to detail is all you need to assemble it perfectly.

Note that this recipe has been made for a 10 x 13 inch baking tray, feel free to double it if you are using a bigger baking tray.
