Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Swiss Roll.

An old favourite, I always got either chocolate or apricot swiss roll when I visited my Grandma so thought I would have a go at trying to make a gluten and dairy free version. If the swiss roll cracks when you roll it up don’t worry about it, just call it ‘homemade rustic’!
