Something must be wrong...

I made this with the ingredients shown and both mixtures were too dry to roll out, let alone roll into a swiss roll. I ended up having to add approx 1tbsp of oil to the vanilla mixture and about 3tbsp to the cocoa mixture just to hold them together.
I gave up on the idea of making pinwheels and instead made a batch of vanilla and a batch of chocolate. The end result tastes nice, but is still very crumbly.
All in all, I'm very disapointed with this recipe.
