The origins of the term are unclear. In spite of the name "Swiss roll", the cake 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 Victoria sponge.
Alternative names: Jelly roll, roll cake

What is the difference between a Roulade and Swiss roll?

swiss roll is always made up of cake being rolled with a filing, whereas a roulade can be rolled using other pastries or can even be savoury with a meat filling.
