Earl Grey Swiss Roll

$5.90 · 48 Reviews

Traveling to Serangoon to try out the Swiss Rolls by @cafeplainjane was worth the calories! We had a feast with the various rolls available on the day.

Raspberry
Ispahan with Lychee Jelly
Earl Grey
Dirty Chai
Matcha Latte

Our top favorite was the Ispahan with Lychee Jelly that had a lovely subtle blend of rose flavor. The sponge cake was light and airy.

If Earl Grey is your favorite tea blend, you may enjoy their Earl Grey Swiss Roll. We felt that the sponge cake was not as light and airy as the others but the citrusy filling was really rich!

Overall, it was a lovely afternoon with delicious cakes and hot drinks!

Ordered the matcha and earl grey rolls and of the two, I definitely recommend the latter! The cake is not as soft and pillowy as you’d expect from a Swiss roll, but the filling was really rich and flavourful! Not too sweet either which I appreciate!

Got this as part of a set with a small teapot of tea. The rolls are really quite pleasant. The sponge layer is not the most fluffy but they really so go all out with the cream in their rolls. The earl grey flavour was just nice - not too subtle nor too powerful. Great for an early breakfast or a mid afternoon snack!

The Plain Jane ❤️ 2nd visit here... This time I had the Xmas version of their Meringue Roulade that comes with a taste of mint and their all time favorite Earl Grey Swiss Roll... .

These delicate babies were full of flavors yet not coyingly sweet. We especially enjoyed the plain Swiss roll. The cream was incredibly smooth, soft and creamy. It was a right balance of sweetness and eggy taste. Could really taste that the cream was handmade and not just some store bought cream.

Earl grey Swiss roll was also delicious. The earl grey flavor permeated through the cream. It wasn’t just some artificial flavoring. I could really taste the authenticity of the earl grey, where it was brewed and infused into the cream.

Forgot to mention, the cake was soft and spongy and airy. Very very delicious and more importantly not overly sweet. A perfect afternoon treat!

Another plus point: the cafe is adorned with beautiful decorations and minimalist design. Very insta-worthy!

We got 2 swiss roll with tea sets using Burpple Beyond App at $14.90. The Ispahan Rose with Lychee Jelly swiss roll was really good. Cake was moist, the cream was light and very fragrant. Paired with the Berries Merah Tea, it was perfect. The Earl Grey swiss roll on the other hand, was slightly dry and the cream was a tad too heavy. Good thing is it did carry strong earl grey aroma, pairing with the Lychee Konnyaku Tea, it was quite a nice match.

This cafe has been on my list for the longest time! 😛 Happy to say that even though the Swiss Roll wasn’t mindblowing 🤯, it was good enough for me! With its relatively soft texture and intense earl grey fragrance, it’s something I’d order again! Paired it with their berries tea ☕️ and it seemed like a match made in heaven! 💞

Ordered the earl grey swissroll together with the berries tea as a set under burpple beyond and was quite happy with this purchase! The earl grey taste was strong while the chiffon swissroll was soft and moist. Would definitely come back again to try the other flavours!

This cute floral-themed cafe in Serangoon fills up fast so come at odd hours to snag a seat. Tea-fanatics, you'll love the fragrant and not-too-sweet Earl Grey Swiss Roll ($5.90) or the Thai Milk Tea Swiss Roll ($5.90) that uses a tea mix from Thailand. Burppler Julius Lim recommends pairing your swiss roll with coffee (with #BurppleBeyond 1-for-1 deal, get two sets with coffee for the price of one!).

Head over to Serangoon for a treat of fluffy and light swiss rolls at this quaint shophouse – great for intimate catchups or chill reading teatimes. Popular flavours include the earthy Earl Grey ($5.90) and delightful Blueberry Yogurt ($6.90). Pair that with a cuppa Iced Latte ($6.50), and your afternoon is made.
