A Swiss Roll has many different names. It could also be called a Jelly Roll, Roll Cake, Cream Roll, Swiss Log or something else depending on the country. For example, in Japan they’re called “roll cake” but in Indonesia they’re called “bolu gulung.” Either way, swiss rolls are delicious no matter what name it is called by. A swiss roll is a type of sponge cake that is rolled and filled with whipped cream, jam or icing. No one really knows where the name “Swiss roll” came from, but the roll itself is believed to have originated from somewhere in Central Europe, most likely Austria. Yup, even though it is called Swiss roll it is surprisingly not from Switzerland! Swiss rolls are popular in the UK as a teatime treat or served as dessert, and a variety of flavours can be easily found in their supermarkets.
