Meat Floss Swiss Roll-Happy Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is just 2 weeks later yet too early to celebrate. I just feel like doing this cake without any reasons. Just follow the heart. I am too lazy to make complicated fillings for the cake. Therefore I stuck to meat floss and mayonnaise. Is it easy? It is as easy as ABC.



For the patterns:

a) ½ Egg, 15g sugar
b) 12 g plain flour
c) 8 g oil

Method: (line a 21 cm x 36 cm Swiss Roll baking tray with parchment paper)

1) Whip egg and sugar till thick and foamy..
2) Fold in flour and mix well till well blended.
3) Stir in C) and mix until well incorporated.
4).Spoon the batter into 3 small bowls. Red for flower petals; green for leaves and branches; you may use as many colours as you wish.
5)Spoon each colour portion into a piping bag, pipe out the patterns on to the prepared baking tray, bake at 190 degree for 1 ½ minutes.

4) Pour the batter into the pre-baked patterns tray at 190 degree for 12 – 15 minutes.

  3. Hi Surabhi Jain, thank you for dropping by my blog. As I have never made egg-less cake before, I'm afraid I am unable to provide you an egg-less cake recipe. Suggest you can google search for a suitable substitute for egg? Hope to hear from you soon!
