Arrollado Suizo - Swiss Roll

They say you inherit many traits from your parents... some good, some bad... I have luckily managed to learn (or is it genetic!!) the art of cooking from my mum... but I inherited something from my dad which goes hand in hand with this skill... a sweet tooth and pure delight in tasting and trying all things delicious! 

I always remember that no matter what was being baked in the kitchen... dad was our official taster... a very important role in any kitchen!!

This next recipe is quite delicious!  It is called Arrollado Suiso and is based on the basic Bizcochuelo Blancaflor we saw a few blogs ago.

Arrollado Suiso



Cake (see Bizcochuelo Blancaflor recipe)
  • 3/4 cup of plain flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 150g of butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup of icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
Dulce de Leche
  • See previous blog entry for how to make the Dulce de Leche - remember to make this at least a day before.

To make the cake: Follow the directions for making Bizcochuelo Blancaflor (previous blog)

To make the Cream:  Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until creamy. If it appears a little bland place in the fridge to let it settle and it should stiffen up.

When you have mixed all the ingredients as per recipe for Bizcochuelo Blanaflor stretch the dough  in a very shallow well lined tray about 1/2cm thick.  Cook in a high heat oven (200 degrees pre heated oven) for about 10-15mins.

Once cooked gently remove from the tray and place on a humid clean dishtowel which has been sprinkled with sugar, cut the edges to make a neat rectangular shape.  Place a healthy amount of Dulce de Leche over the whole cake. Now carefully start rolling the cake - remember if there are parts which split don't fret... keep rolling and the cracks will be covered by beautiful cream!  Leave to cool covered by the dishtowel.

Once cooled place the cream all over the roll..and it's ready to eat!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
