  • 0.07 oz (2g) baking powder
  • 1.8 fl oz (50ml) milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 340°F (170°C).

Egg Preparation:

  1. Separate the egg yolks from the whites.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with 1.8 oz (50g) of sugar until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
  3. Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the remaining 2.5 oz (70g) of sugar, beating until you have a glossy meringue.

Making the Batter:

  1. Gently fold the beaten egg yolks into the meringue, sifting the flour and baking powder over the mixture.
  2. Mix the milk and oil together and add to the batter, stirring gently until all ingredients are incorporated.


  1. Pour the batter into the prepared baking tray, smoothing it out evenly.
  2. Tap the baking tray lightly on the counter to remove air bubbles.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the cake is golden and firm to the touch.


  1. Immediately remove the cake from the baking tray onto a sheet of parchment paper or clean kitchen towel dusted with powdered sugar.
  2. Spread a uniform layer of fruit jam or honey over the cake.
  3. Carefully roll the cake using the parchment paper or kitchen towel to help shape the roll.


  1. Place the roll in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before slicing.
