Gula Melaka Pandan Swiss Roll Recipe

Updated: Mar 30, 2022

Have you tried this beautiful Palm Sugar Pandan Swiss Roll?

Another Ultimate Pandan cake for you, calling all Pandan Lovers out there........

Group A: Pan size 27x27cm

3 egg yolks

10g caster sugar

20ml veg oil

40ml milk

65g cake flour

1 tsp vanilla extract

7g Pandan powder or more per your preference

1 tbsp Pandan Leaf Extract for green food colouring (more for a deeper green)

Group B:

3 egg whites

85g caster sugar

Group C - Gula Melaka Creme Chantilly


160 ml thickened cream at least 35% fat

30 g gula melaka* ; shaved if using blocks

1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven 190 degrees celcius. Line square cake pan (27cm x 27cm) with baking parchment. If you do not have a pan this size, use a larger tray, and place some oven safe loaf pans to block out the area you do not want to use. Use an aluminium foil to keep to the two parts separated. It is important to bake the sponge cake in the correct size pan.

  2. Separate 3 eggs yolk and egg white. Sift the cake flour. Add caster sugar to egg yolks and whisking to combine until I turns pale colour, then add veg oil, milk and mix well. Then add sifted flour and Pandan powder and whisked until is combined and get smooth batter. Add Pandan leaf extract until you get a deep green as desired.

  3. Prepare a meringue with Group B ingredients: Whisk egg whites in a grease-free bowl until soft peaks.Gradually add in the sugar and whisk at high speed until stiff peaks.

  4. Add in a scoop of the meringue into the batter and whisk. Then add in the remaining meringue in 2-3 additions and fold gently with a spatula until mixture is just incorporated.

  5. Pour batter gently onto the prepared pan and spread evenly with a small palette knife. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until it springs back to touch. The top should be slightly golden brown.

  6. When the souffle sponge is out of the oven, carefully flip the warm sponge onto the parchment and peel the baking paper away from the sponge. Cover the sponge with cling wrap immediately. You want to cover it when it is still hot so the steam will keep the cake moist and pliable.

  7. Allow the sponge to cool down entirely before assembling it.

Group C: Gula Melaka Creme Chantilly


Melt the shaved gula melaka over low heat until it has completely dissolved into a syrup. Leave it to cool completely before whisking the cream in a grease-free bowl at high speed and slowly add in the gula melaka syrup in a stream and vanilla extract when it is starting to achieve soft peaks. Whisk at high speed until firm peaks.

Swissroll in all faces and flavours and some tips below.

BE adventurous and play with our range of Superfood Powders as well as Latte blends to create your own Swissroll and some suggestions below.

  1. 1 tablespoon Butterfly Pea Powder (add vanilla as flavour)

  2. 2 tablespoon Dragonfruit Powder (will publish this recipe in the new future)

  3. 30 grams of Durian Latte blend (sprinkle with Expresso powder on the chantilly before you roll it)

  4. 30 grams of Purple Sweet Potato Latte blend

  5. 30 grams of Jackfruit Latte blend

  6. 25 grams of Matcha Coconut latte

To assemble

20g shaved Gula Melaka (optional)

Gula Melaka Creme Chantilly

  1. When the sponge is cooled (it should be cooled completely, so it doesn’t crack) Trim the sides with a small serrate knife to neaten it and score a few lines along the bottom of the sponge.

  2. Spread the whipped cream onto the sponge using a palette knife, leaving a small margin along all four sides.

  3. Top with shaved bits of Gula Melaka. Gently roll the sponge up but try to do it quite tightly so there won’t be gaps in between the sponge and creme chantilly. The sponge is pliable and soft so it should be pretty easy to do so. You can use the parchment paper to help you. Trim the two ends of the swiss roll (then enjoy eating the trimmings). Slice the swiss roll before serving.

  4. *Storage tip: Keep the swiss roll in the fridge. Slice them just before serving. You should try to finish this in a few days.
