Banana Cream Cheese Swiss Roll

Banana Cream Cheese Swiss Roll (All time favourite soft and Fluffy)
I always feel hesitated to try out as I have tried a few times in making of sponge cakes and it fails terribly. From a sponge cake it turns to be stiff and cracks when rolling it up. So finding out what goes wrong again and again, I decide to give a try again. Looking for the mistakes of my past failure:

1)      The eggs whites are not beaten in high peak!
2)      The high peak beaten egg whites are deflated during the mixing in!

This time, I got it right! HA HA HA. My efforts are really paid off! Thanks to blogger’s advice and youtube clips. Here it is:
