Brazo de Gitano Spain
When literally translated Brazo de Gitano means gypsys arm, and is the Spanish name for a Swiss roll. Strangely, the Swiss roll was not designed either in Spain or Switzerland and is most likely to have been found somewhere in central Europe. However, this dessert has become an interesting homemade staple in Spain, and one that is commonly found at family meals and celebrations such as Christmas.
