So today we started with this easy no bake eggless swiss roll which we had seen in the video few days back and we added out own verson as he don't like coconut filling.

  • 50g icing sugar
  • A little vanilla extract


Make powder of tea biscuits in a blender and add it to a large mixing bowl.

Now add sugar, coca powder and chocolate syrup and butter. Make a soft dough by adding very little water.
Now whip the cream by adding sugar and vanilla extract in b bowl and keep aside.
Take grease proof paper or butter paper and roll the dough  slowly in to rectangular shape.

apply the whipped cream on top of it and make a roll of the dough slowly with the use of butter paper.
