Mango Magic Contest Recipe – Mango Swiss Roll with Pineapple Cream Filling

Mango Swiss Roll with Pineapple Cream Filling by Amrita Iyer for #pkmangomagic recipe contest.

All of us love desserts though we are cautious in having them these days. We all get tired of the cakes and cookies bought from the stores and some of us are eager to make our own creations and please family and friends alike.I have one complaint these days that whatever season it be, the bakeries stock up on only chocolate items. I am not at all partial to Chocolate and crave for other flavours like Strawberry, Vanilla or Pineapple. I was looking for one excuse to craft a perfect cake,especially the cream cakes which are referred as “Pastries” in India. I got the opportunity to make a classic Swiss Roll using seasonal fruit and correlated essences which was a huge hit.
Before proceeding to the recipe I will want to make certain concepts clear for people who are and of course would be excited to make this. I would suggest you take a pen and paper and calculate the amount by weight of ingredients needed as the Swiss Roll Pan differs in quantity and size.
