Day 66: Bluberry Lemon Swiss Roll

I really like this swiss roll recipe because the cake's super light and fluffy, and the blueberry adds some nice texture. All in all, it's a AMAZING! I made my swiss roll super small so I'm going to give you all the double of what I did.


I love this recipe because sponge cake is super simple. Even though I made a small batch of this sponge cake (which was a terrible decision) it was still super easy to make.

Because my sponge cake was tiny, it needed a smaller baking sheet. So, I made this little aluminum foil baking sheet and it worked amazing! Make sure to butter yours though, otherwise it will stick.


Layer your cake with the blueberry filling, on a dish towel.

And there you have it! Super yummy and delicious!
