http://www.thesweetart.com/2011/04/vertical-swiss-roll-cake.html

This recipe gives you a beautiful vertical stripe inside the cake. It is absolutely an elegant cake! Recipe is in Spanish, but here I translated for you! Enjoy!

For a mold of 20 cm
3 eggs
130 g sugar
100 g flour
30 g cocoa powder
1 pinch salt

Ingredients for cookie dough: (I did 2 trays)
6 eggs
300 g sugar
300 g flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

Ingredients for filling and decoration:
1 jar of Blueberry jam
400 g of milk cream
200 g Philadelphia

Instruction:
1 Beat the eggs (at room temperature) with sugar for at least 15 minutes, stir with a spatula and downward movements with the flour sifted with cocoa.
2 Grease and flour the cake and bake at 170 degrees for 40 minutes.

3 Prepare the dough for cookies: Beat the eggs with the sugar until they become fluffy (about 5 minutes), sift the flour with the baking powder and add two times for eggs, mixing with a spatula from bottom up until everything is perfectly integrated.
4 Cover the pan with foil in the oven, pour half of the mixture and level so that you have the same height.
5 Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees for 8-10 minutes, cooked remove the mass of the paper. (2 of them, have to do)

6 Now, prepare the filling: beat the cream, Philadelphia mix in a bowl until it is creamy and then fold in the cream.
7 Now assemble the cake: divide the cake in half and spread a bit of filling.
8 Cut into strips of approx. 7 cm of height of the cookie dough (for me served 5) and cover with marmalade, scroll to form a large 'giro' and place it in the base of the cake.
9 spread the other piece with filling and place as a top on the rotating part.
10 With the rest of the cream to cover entire cake and garnish to your taste!.

Preparation: It must be cold and then it can be cut.
