Swiss Roll Cake & Scandinavian Sandwich Cake (Recipes included!)

Posted by


Today I’ll do a bit different post and share couple yummy cakes a baked lately. They might be a bit weird for some of you but they are super delicious though. When I did Scandinavian Sandwich Cake in US people thought it’s super odd to combine sandwiches and cake but here in Finland we love it. It’s something that’s very commonly served in big event’s such as graduation party or grandma’s 70th Birthday. Swiss Roll Cake is not that popular anymore but it used to be a big thing couple years ago. It’s easy and fast to make so why not to do it instead of regular cakes? 🙂




Swiss roll cake


Swiss roll (300-400g)

3/4cup (1.5dl) cream

100g fat-free thick yoghurt

125g blueberries


½ cup (1 dl) juice

4 leaves of gelatin


  • Cover a bowl with plastic wrap
  • Cut swiss roll in around 1/2 inch (1 cm) slices
  • Cover the edges of the bowl with cake slices
  • Mix yoghurt, berries and sugar
  • Soak gelatin leaves in cool water for around 5 minutes
  • Heat juice, squeeze water from gelatin leaves and melt them into the juice
  • Pour juice and gelatin to yoghurt and mix
  • Pour the mixture into bowl on swiss roll slices
  • Add a layer of swiss roll slices
  • Cover with plastic foil and let the cake set over night in fridge
  • Take the foil off and turn the cake over with a plate
  • enjoy
