What is a Swiss roll?
A classic Swiss roll is a thin layer of vanilla sponge cake rolled around strawberry or raspberry jam. This gluten-free tiramisu-style version is layered with whipping cream-mascarpone cream, cocoa powder, coffee and Kahlua liqueur. You can replace the liqueur with chocolate sauce or vanilla extract if you prefer.
Easy way to make a tiramisu-style Swiss roll.
The Swiss roll is all about the sponge cake. First, the sponge must be moist and soft enough to roll. This tiramisu Swiss roll recipe took me a few tries before I perfected a moist, light sponge cake to roll.
Start with whisking the eggs with sugar. The eggs must be at room temperature. Once the eggs are light and fluffy, add melted butter and vanilla.
To finish the swiss roll batter, add a simple mix of dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. The batter is now ready for baking.
Using a large rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper brushed with olive oil, spread the batter evenly on the baking sheet. The sponge easily peels off the paper by brushing the parchment paper with oil.
The sponge is kept slightly warm while you drizzle it with coffee and spread with cream and a dusting of cocoa powder.
roll the sponge cake,
Turn the sponge so that a short edge is closest to you. Using the paper underneath to help you, roll up the sponge firmly but gently.
the next step,
Once you have the roll ready, you must chill it. By chilling the roll, the dessert will firm up for easy slicing.
the topping for tiramisu Swiss roll,
Once the roll has chilled, coat it with the remaining cream and give it a generous sprinkle of cocoa powder. The gluten-free tiramisu swiss roll is a lot simpler to make than it seems, I promise.
What is Kahlua?
Kahlua coffee liqueur’s main ingredients are 100% Arabica coffee beans, rum, corn syrup and has 20% of alcohol. This sweet liqueur tastes like black coffee, roasted chestnut and sweet butter—a classic flavour for tiramisu dessert.
Is Kahlua Gluten-Free?
As per the Kahlua manufacturer, there are no added gluten ingredients in the Kahlua original, and it is considered gluten-free. Another one of our favourite gluten-free dessert recipes made with Kahlua is the Gluten-Free Chocolate Brownie.
If you like coffee and cocoa flavoured desserts and rich cream, this gluten-free tiramisu Swiss roll will become one of your favourites. Enjoy!
