Whey Strawberry Rolls


Whey or milk plasma is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained. It is a by-product of the manufacture of cheese or casein.


  1. Sift the flour and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Line a 30x40-cm baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 175C/350F.
  2. In another bowl, place together the whey, strawberry icing powder and corn oil. Whisk until the mixture is emulsified. Sift in flour mixture and blend until just combined. Add in egg yolks and fold until smooth.
  3. Beat egg whites with salt and lemon juice over low speed until frothy and foamy. Gradually add in sugar, increase speed and beat until stiff but not dry. Carefully fold 1/3 of egg white mixture into flour mixture to lighten it and then carefully fold in remaining whites.
  4. Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking tray and spread the surface even. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove, cool briefly, and invert the cake onto a new parchment paper. Carefully peel off the the paper liner and then invert again the baked side-up to cool on a wire rack. Trim the edges of cake. Spread the surface with whipped cream and roll it up. Chill for about 1 hour and slice.

Last, but not the least, I want to thank SHAHANA@ME N MY APRON sharing all these beautiful awards with me.

Thank you my friends, for taking time to read my post and leaving behind the such kind words.
Wendy: I have tried the milk instead of whey to bake Swiss rolls...the texture is about the same.

My Little Space 29/3/10 07:15

The cake looks soft & fluffy! I think I need a little more cream for this. haha.... Eat first and think later... about the waist line!

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 29/3/10 07:28

My Asian Kitchen: I think whey just adds some flavours to the cake, can't really serve as an improver.

Angie, I love these sponge rolls! Used to make them every week when my kids were younger, I LOVE this one with the pink strawberry flavor! How fun and how appropriate to welcome spring with!

Krissy @ The Food Addicts 30/3/10 07:26

this is definitely my kind of dessert! the sponge cake is so soft and moist, and the cream just makes it so silky. great choice on making it a strawberry flavor. i gotta try making sponge cake soon...

petite nyonya 30/3/10 11:59

Your swiss rolls are just stunning!! What is German flour, by the way? Can I use plain flour instead?

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 30/3/10 12:06

petite nyonya: German #405 flour contains more or less 10% protein. So I think it can be replaced with pastry flour. p.s. your blog profile doesn't work anymore? When I clicked your name, it said it's not available.
