Chocolate Cheese Swiss Roll

Finally I arrived in Sydney after 7+hours of flight.  The weather is pretty nice this time, not very cold and chilly although  it's 13*C.  Heard from the taxi driver that it rained heavily on Friday,  fortunate that the weather forecasted sunny in coming week.  Phew!!

When I arrived the hotel, it's already 5+pm and the sky had turned dark.  Nothing much I could do here at this hour since most of the shops had been closed except the cafe and convenience shops.  Things are so expensive here.  I went Seven Eleven to get some stuffs for dinner, an apple cost me A$2 and A$2.45 for an instant noodle (mini cup)!

Since the night is still young, I decided get the chocolate cheese swiss roll pictures posted - this was baked last week  and had no time to do it during weekday.

This recipe is definitely a keeper.  It's so yummy! My family enjoyed eating!  Again, I followed the 孟老師's recipe but with some alternations.

I just realized that I didn't bring along the recipe here and therefore, I could only update this post with more details after returning home.  Cheer!

Updated on July 31.
Finally back in Singapore and hope I'm still able to make it to submit this entry to Aspiring Bakers #9 – “Swiss Rolling Good Times” (July 2011) hosted by Lynn of Obsessedly Involved with Food.
