Nutritional values

Whether as a light, protein-rich dinner, brunch or buffet: the great role is played by a lot of vitamin E in particular. This vitamin acts as a natural blood thinner and thus helps to keep the heart and circulation fit.

For heart and blood vessels: If possible, use a high-quality margarine suitable for baking with many unsaturated fatty acids; but please do not use low-fat margarine - its increased liquid content impairs the baking result!

1 Cutting board, 1 Small knife, 1 Peeler, 1 Fine grater, 1 Small bowl, 1 Plastic wrap, 1 deep bowl, 1 Hand mixer, 1 Mixing bowl, 1 Kitchen scale, 1 Bowl, 1 Rubber spatula, 1 Baking sheet, 1 Parchment paper, 1 Kitchen towel, 1 Kitchen shears, 1 Teaspoon

Preparation steps

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 1

Peel carrots and finely grate. Put half the grated carrots in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 2

Separate eggs. Beat egg whites in a tall vessel until stiff with the whisk attachment of a hand mixer. Reserve in refrigerator. 

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 3

Put the margarine in a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy with the mixer. Gradually beat in the egg yolks. 

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 4

Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and pepper in a bowl and add to the yolk mixture in 2 batches, beating to combine.

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 5

Add the remaining grated carrots and the egg whites and fold into batter with a rubber spatula.

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 6

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the batter on top and bake on second rack from the bottom of preheated oven at 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 3) (approximately 400°F/convection 350°F) until golden brown and springy to the touch, 15-20 minutes.

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 7

Invert the sponge cake onto a kitchen towel and let cool for a few minutes. Peel off the parchment paper. 

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 8

Starting from a long side, roll up the cake loosely, incorporating the towel as you go. Allow to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 9

Meanwhile, cut the cress from the roots with kitchen shears and set aside half of cress. Stir the quark in a bowl until creamy and season with salt and pepper. Fold in the cress and the reserved (refrigerated) grated carrots. 

Hearty Swiss Roulade preparation step 10

Unroll the sponge cake, spread with 3/4 of cress-carrot mixture and roll up again without the towel. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Before serving, spread remaining cress-carrot mixture over top of roulade, garnish with reserved cress and cut into slices.
