    Pull out of oven and pour rest of the batter over the pre baked pattern. Cover loosely with foil (it should not touch the batter) and bake in lower part of oven for 10 minutes only. (I generally hover around the oven to make sure the swiss roll is not browning too much, if it does, pull it out.)
