4 Ingredient Swiss Roll Cake

A Swiss Roll Cake made with just 4 ingredients. This is very easy to put together and you wouldn't need an oven to make this cake, this is made on stovetop. Fill it with Nutella or your favorite filling and enjoy it till the last crumb.
Servings: 3



  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Nutella/ Cookie Butter/ Jam/ Whipped cream



  • Using an electric beater, beat the sugar and eggs for about 5 minutes till nice and fluffy.
  • Add in the flour and baking powder and with a spatula, fold it into the mixture well. ( I added 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence at this point, its optional)
  • In a non-stick pan melt the butter, pour the batter and spread evenly. Cover and cook for 3-5 mins on a very low flame.
  • Take out the cake from the pan and immediately spread the filling in the cake and roll it tightly. (If using Whipping cream, read notes)
  • Cut into rounds.


If you are using whipping cream as the filling, remember to cool the cake fully before spreading the cream.
Make sure that you whisk the eggs till light and fluffy, only then you will get that spongy texture.
Roll the cake when it is slightly warm itself. If you are using whipping cream for your filling, then roll the cake while it is still warm and keep it rolled in a cloth. Once the cake cools down completely, open the cake and spread the whipping cream into it and roll it again.
You can warm the Nutella a little bit in the microwave before spreading it on the cake. This will make it easier to spread.
