For the Cake

1 teaspoon baking powder


1/2 teaspoon salt

4 large eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup buttermilk


1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Filling


1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the Frosting


1 cup unsalted butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Decoration


Fresh cranberries

Fresh herbs (such as thyme or mint) for garnish



Step 1: Prepare the Cake


Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a 10×15-inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper and lightly grease it.

Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.

Beat Eggs and Sugar: In a large bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar with an electric mixer on high speed until thick and pale, about 3-4 minutes.

Add Wet Ingredients: Add the vegetable oil, buttermilk, and vanilla extract to the egg mixture, mixing until well combined.

Combine Mixtures: Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.

Roll the Cake: While the cake is still warm, carefully turn it out onto a clean kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar.

Peel off the parchment paper and roll the cake up in the towel, starting from the short end. Let it cool completely on a wire rack.

Step 2: Make the Filling

  1. Whip the Cream: In a large bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Step 3: Assemble the Cake

  1. Unroll the Cake: Once the cake has cooled, gently unroll it and spread the whipped cream evenly over the surface.
  2. Reroll the Cake: Carefully roll the cake back up, using the towel to help guide it. Place the rolled cake seam-side down on a serving platter.

Step 4: Prepare the Frosting

  1. Beat Butter: In a large bowl, beat the softened butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until creamy.
  2. Add Powdered Sugar and Cocoa: Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, beating on low speed until combined.
  3. Add Cream and Vanilla: Add the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract, beating on high speed until the frosting is light and fluffy.

Step 5: Decorate the Cake

  1. Frost the Cake: Spread the frosting evenly over the entire cake roll.
  2. Garnish: Decorate the top of the cake with fresh cranberries and herbs for a festive touch.

Tips for Success

  • Roll While Warm: Rolling the cake while it is still warm helps prevent cracks and ensures a smooth spiral pattern.
  • Chill the Whipping Cream: For the best results, chill the bowl and beaters before whipping the cream.
  • Even Spreading: Make sure to spread the whipped cream filling evenly to avoid lumps and ensure a beautiful swirl.

Enjoy your homemade Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake! This delightful dessert is sure to impress your guests with its delicious flavor and elegant presentation.
