Vegan GlutenFree Swiss Roll

Join me as I share the Vegan GlutenFree Swiss Roll recipe on the blog today. Baking without staples like butter, eggs, and flour can be intimidating, but fear not! Together, we’ll uncover the secrets to crafting a Swiss Roll that is not only allergy-friendly but also irresistibly delicious.

I experimented with alternative ingredients to recreate the classic Swiss Roll without compromising on flavor or texture. Discover the secrets behind choosing the right substitutes for dairy, eggs, and gluten, and how these choices transformed the baking process.

Making The Vegan GlutenFree Swiss Roll Allergen Free

  • In this recipe, I have not used any egg or egg replacements. So anyone who does not consume eggs can make this without having to look for an egg replacer.
  • To make it gluten free, I used a gluten free all purpose flour mix and you have to make sure it has xanthum gum in it.
  • For the icing, I used a store-bought dairy free frosting but you can use this Dairy Free Cream Cheese Frosting to make your own at home.

Filling The Vegan GlutenFree Swiss Roll

I have used not only frosting but also a jam, which was gifted to me, from JamWorksJam, a local small woman-owned business. You can use whatever you like.

Coloured Swiss Roll

You can use the batter as is or make the batter colourful as I did, after mixing up the ingredients divide the batter into four bowls and add your favorite colours, and mix.

How To Roll The Cake?

I used a flat sheet baking tray and placed parchment paper before pouring the dough on the tray to bake. Once baked, I let it cool down a little. It should not cool down completely, should still be a little warm to the touch. Then with the help of the parchment paper, I started rolling the cake – this ensures all the cake rolls at the same time and also prevents large cracks.

If any cracks do appear just use the extra frosting to cover it up.

Storing The Cake

I wrapped it in a plastic wrapper and placed it in the fridge.
