What is a Swiss roll?

A Swiss roll, jelly roll, roll cake, or cream roll, or Swiss log, is a type of sponge cake roll filled with whipped cream, jam, or icing.

The origins of the term are unclear. In spite of the name "Swiss roll", theΒ cakeΒ is believed to have originated elsewhere in Central Europe, likely Austria. It appears to have been invented in the nineteenth century, along with Battenberg, doughnuts, and VictoriaΒ sponge.

WP Tasty:

This is an awesome platform and I invite any of you to explore and if you decide to join, please find my affiliate link below. Yes, I will earn a small commission should you join, but it will be at no cost to you whatsoever.

I am using this and the only issue I have is that I did not start earlier! 😒 This is a fantastic feature and plugin, to have on your blog when you share recipes.  Your recipe has a set structure and Google loves it.  Would you like it and have Google include it and show it as a search result when someone searches for a recipe?  Yes OR No?  

My guess would be that you will answer YES to the above.  For that reason alone, it’s highly beneficial to use the WP Tasty plugin!

You can type it out in the body of your post, but having a recipe card that’s aesthetically pleasing and when laid out for sure has a benefit in that it will keep your readers on your page longer to read the full recipe and hopefully leave a comment and try your recipe. Tasty Links
