Hi Anncoo,

Thanks, it taste like caramel leh! I think butterscotch and toffee taste like caramel with a touch of butter flavor in it.

Hi Yummy Bakes,

Thanks, try out this recipe and I'm sure you will love it.

hi there! can I ask, what brand of butter do you usually use for baking?

Happy Flour said...

Hi Ying,

I don't really use any particular brand of butter. I used SCS, Lupak, Emborg, Golden Churn, etc. Mostly is unsalted butter.

Thanks for sharing the recipe, when i first time made swiss roll, face a problem, the cake was crack. any idea why the cake is crack? should i roll the cake and apply the cream while the cake is still hot? i'm using the separate sponge cake method to do the swiss roll. thanks. AW

Hi Anonymous,

The cake crack during rolling or after baked? If you spread the cream and roll it while it hot, the cream will melt and the roll will be soggy.

thanks for your reply. I'm roll the cake when it still hot. i wait till the cake cool down and unroll it to apply cream, it started crack. I put the cake under fan, would it be the reason the cake getting dry? can i cool down cake under fan? Usually when i making cake, i'll on the fan. many thanks for your tips. Fr AW

Hi AW,

I don't like this pre-roll method, once you rolled and unroll it again it will sure crack. Just leave the sponge to cool naturally. The sponge will tend to become dried when cool directly under fan.
