    Oh, damn.... I'm really trying to be very sparing with palm oil use because the ethics behind it are pretty horrific.... I don't know if coconut oil is much better, however.... :shrug:

    I try not to look that stuff up too often because I'm afraid I'll run out of things to eat! :confused: LOL

    The vegan margarines over here contain palm oil also, at least all the ones I've seen.

    I use Crisco for pie crusts.Nothing else works as well for a flaky, tender crust.

    I don't remember the brand but my cousin buys a non dairy spread that is palm oil free.

    Most of the non dairy spreads over here don't contain palm oil. The reason is that consumers weren't buying them
    due to health reasons.

    I also like Trex which is the UK equivalent of crispo for making pastry as it does have a nicer texture.

    Anyway coming back to the recipe you can make truffles with just chocolate and non dairy cream. You can also dump the recipe if it's too complicated.:yes:

    I have not tried a vegan one, but yes, this looks intriguing.

    I remember making swiss roles/roulade when I was at school. I have also seen them being made on various baking shows on TV. I think that the vegan version would give you a slightly denser sponge due not having using eggs in the recipe.

    However, there is no reason why it couldn't be rolled successfully. There are a few tips that I still remember and they can be found in the following link. The main ones that I still remember are to use greaseproof/parchement paper. Be careful not to overcook the sponge if not it will crack and will be difficult to roll. Immediately trim off the ends and roll up tightly whilst the sponge is still warm with parchement paper. Place a humid kitchen towel over the sponge whilst it's cooling down. Unroll carefully when cold and add the filling.
    Don't worry if there are any apparent cracks as you will be able to cover them with the plant based butter/cream icing.

    Ok, cool. I think I will try it! What’s the worst that can happen? It falls apart and I end up eating cake pieces with icing, lol.

    If the worse things happens, you could also make a trifle with it. I think the key word is not too over bake.
