How to make the recipe?
  1. Preheat the oven for 20 mins at 180 °C before baking. Grease a swiss roll pan Or tray with oil. Place a parchment / butter paper which is large in size over the greased tray.
  2. Beat yolks separately until pale yellow on medium speed with a beater. Now add half of sugar and sugar beat until light and creamy.
  3. Put milk into beaten egg yolks and mix well.
  4. Time to beat egg whites ensure you use a dry and clean beater. Beat egg whites until light and fluffy. Now add cream of tartar and beat until they are creamy.
  5. At this stage add rest of sugar.
  6. Beat egg whites till they look like soft peaks.
  7. Slowly fold flour into batches of three into the egg-milk mixture. Lastly add vanilla essence and fold egg whites gently. Please don't over-mix the batter else you will have a hard cake.
  8. Pour into the greased pan leaving some space for it to rise. If any batter remains don't pour over the pan keep it for later. Bake at 180°C for 7 to 8 mins Or until toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool for 5 mins. Place a damp towel over a wide surface. Grease a butter paper and place over damp towel.
  10. Gently unmould the cake over the greased butter paper. Now remove the baking paper gently.
  11. Mix blueberry jam with rum. Sprinkle some desiccated coconut. Spread all over the cake.
  12. With the help of damp towel and greased butter paper start folding the cake from one end to another end forming a log. If it has any crack it's fine don't worry.
  13. Place this log over a greased dish and chill in the fridge for 30 mins.
  14. Meanwhile double boil the chocolate until it melts Or microwave for a minute. Spread the melted chocolate all over the chilled swiss roll with the help of spatula Or flat knife.
  15. Allow to chill for an hour Or so. Very soon the chocolate will solidify.
  16. Now sprinkle some caster Or icing sugar over the cake. Decorate with cherries and white chocolate.
  17. Slice and serve the chocolate swiss roll warm Or chilled.
Notes
1. Please don't over beat the batter and over bake this cake.
2. If the roll has cracks it's okay cover up with the frosting. Once you keep trying swiss rolls you would master the art of making rolls with no cracks.
3. I have used less sugar you could add more sugar. Also note this roll has jam and frosted with chocolate. So add sugar wisely.
