Strawberry Black-Sesame Swiss Roll | Baking Kit | makes 1 x 13" roll


| /


Does a combination of strawberry and black sesame sound strange to you? It certainly did to some of us when this idea floated during one of our team ideations, but we were certainly convinced when we tried it!

Deliciously earthy tones, with the strawberry striking an excellent balance of flavours, this swiss roll is both pretty, and packs a flavourful punch. It might take you a couple of bites to come on board, but trust us, this is great!

Every one of our recipes was created to use medium-sized eggs, as that is easily found in the supermarket. To make sure your eggs are the right-sized, get eggs that weigh 55g with shell. To determine that, follow the steps below when buying your next carton:

  • Check the label for the total weight of all the eggs.
  • Take that number and divide it by the total number of eggs in the carton
  • The answer should be ~55g.


Carton of 10 eggs > Total weight = 550g > 550/10 = 55g
