Fake Low Sugar Pandan Swiss Roll



What if you can't find any fresh  pandan leaves ( screw pine leaves) around and you would like to have some pandan flavour swiss roll ?

Then , I will get some pandan flavour essence ( photo 3) and green colouring to make a "fake" pandan swiss roll.
This fake Pandan Swiss Roll is low in sugar too. 
But, how about the taste ?
The taste is as"real" as the "fresh pandan leaves" pandan swiss roll:)


Fake Pandan Swiss Roll: ( 14 "X 10" X 1 " baking tray )
Ingredients:
4 eggs  ( separate egg yolks and white , 50 g each)
40 g castor sugar ( + egg white )- The sugar content usually is 80g and above ! This would be too sweet for me.
1/8 tsp  cream of tartar

30 ml water
40 ml corn oil
1 tsp pandan flavour essence
1/2 tsp green colouring

50 g cake flour ( or all purpose flour)
1 tbsp corn flour ( about 20 g)

Method:
1. Beat egg yolks with mixer for 5 mins. , speed 3.( highest)
2. Beat egg white for 1 mins + castor sugar +cream of tartar. beat 1 mins, speed 3 + corn flour , beat 1 min .
3. Measure water + corn oil + pandan flavour essence + green colouring.
4. + sieve cake flour into beaten egg yolk (1). ( in 3 times )
5. + liquid of (3) into (4) egg yolk batter.
6.  Combine ( 5) and  egg white foam ( 2) with spoon or spatula , stir evenly.
7. Pour the mixture into a greased paper baking tray.

Of Baking ( Preheat Oven ) :
Oven Temperature : 190 degree C ( Lowest rack , my oven Faber brand)
Timing : 15 mins(( lower and upper heat ) , then turn to upper heat ,10 mins to brown the top of the sponge.

Prepare whipping cream :
100 ml whipping cream + 1 tsp vanilla essence ( optional )

How to make into swiss roll ?
1. When the sponge is ready , let cool the sponge on a wire rack for 5 -10 mins.
2. Invert the sponge on a new sheet of  cake lining paper and tear off the greased paper.
3. Make 2 slits horizontally across the sponge at the side nearest to you with a steak knife - for easy rolling.
4. Trim off  45 degree the edge of the sponge at the other side with a kitchen scissor - the sponge will get roll up easily at the end.
5. Spread whipping cream and roll up the sponge.
