[6th contest] Raspberry Swiss Roll (vegan, gluten-free)

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Vanilla Sponge cake filled with fresh raspberries, vegan condensed milk, and topped with coconut yogurt and edible flowers. The light, fluffy texture gives it a happy springtime dessert feel. Also, one of my favorite cakes to go with a mug of hot chocolate.

Oftentimes swiss rolls are a difficult recipe to successfully make while only using gluten-free flours. When you start rolling the sheet cake it’ll start crumbling or it’ll crack because the sticky gluten isn’t there to hold it together. However, when the agar powder is added the gelatinous texture holds everything together nicely and problem solved!


Despite its name, this roll is not of Swiss origin but rather British and very popular in Hong Kong.
