Hi one more question - how much butter cream and how much hazelnut spread? thanks

Happy Flour said...

Hi Smita,

Thanks, you have a very interesting blog. Have fun blogging. :)

Hi Yummy Koh,

I think I used about 100g of butter cream, whereas the hazelnut spread I just estimated. My boy preferred a richer taste of hazelnut so I added extra. The balance hazelnut butter cream I used it to spread on toast.
Simply delicious. :)

Thats a very nice looking swiss roll.

Is the cake springy when lightly pressed after 10 mins? I find it hard to determine when the cake is done using whole eggs. My cake either turn out too moist or too dry. And sadly they always break during rolling.

Hi Bakertan,

Thanks, you can use a toothpick to check whether the cake is done. But so far I didn't check. You have to understand and control your oven temperature.
Don't use your hand to roll the cake, use a greaseproof paper to guide and roll up the cake. Don't hesitate while rolling up the cake, must be quick and sharp.
