Having some troubles with sleep lately again, not sure why (work stress?) but since today is a Saturday, I should just wake up early to do something else instead of lying on the bed ...Somehow, first thing on my mind is to get onto my laptop and to scan through any urgent mails that came over the night. Am I workaholic? I guess it's hard for me to change and since it's the Friday afternoon for the US folks, if I could get them a response now, they could probably close the case and not to wait till next week...
I hardly bake swiss roll because I hit a couple of failure and bad experience previously. Given that this month, the Aspiring Bakers slogan is Swiss Rolling Good Times, I think I should join the crowd and send in an entry. I wanted something simple, not too elaborate as I don't want to spend too much time on it and therefore, I picked this Cream Cheese Swiss Roll recipe from one of Alex Goh cookbooks - Baking Code. Though there were some difficulties with the rolling part at the start, the whole process went pretty smoothly. Unexpectedly, this swiss roll turns out so awesome! The texture is so great - fine, soft and moist. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Join me! I trust you will like it.
