Swiss roll

Different countries The Chinese swiss roll looks identical to its Western counterpart, except that it is much lighter in taste. [edit]Hong Kong Chocolate Swiss Roll The origin of this pastry is likely from the UK, since Hong Kong was a British colony from the 19th to late 20th century. The cake is never packaged, as it is sold fresh daily in the Chinese bakeries. Overall, this cake has been sold next to other Chinese pastries well before the popularising of western-style bakeries such as Maxim. There are several popular variations. The first is the Swiss Roll version (Chinese: ? or ?). The roll is made of a standard recipe, and a whipped cream filling is standard. The second is the Chocolate Swiss Roll version (Chinese: ). The roll is made of egg in combination with chocolate flavouring. It also has a whipped cream filling. Some bakeries offer their own variations, such as layers of egg and chocolate swirl. Other variations include strawberry, coffee and orange fillings.[1] Another flavour popular in Hong Kong is the mango flavour, which has a mango flavoured roll with a whipped cream filling. A popular flavour in Chinese Bakeries in America is the Tiger Roll. It has a coffee-flavoured golden-esque stripped outer appearance and is chocolate coloured with traditional white cream inside. It is similar to the look of a Tiger Bread or as known in Northern California, the Dutch Crunch Bread. It can be served with different things and is a dessert.
