Swiss rolls are so much fun to make, most of you think it is a complicated thing to make, but i am telling it is more easy than making any other cakes or desert because it just take less than 12 mins to bake and the batter can be made in less than 10 mins and it just need a handful of ingredients. Plus it has no fat in them so it is pretty healthy.
