Notes on Ingredients

To achieve the best results, it’s crucial to use fresh, high-quality ingredients. The strawberries should be ripe and juicy, while the heavy cream needs to be well-chilled for perfect whipping. Unflavored gelatin helps stabilize the cream, ensuring your filling stays firm and delicious.

How to Make Strawberry Cream Roll

  1. Prepare the Pan: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter a jelly roll pan and line it with buttered foil or parchment paper.
  2. Make the Batter: Beat the eggs until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add the sugar, beating constantly. Stir in the water and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake the Cake: Bake until the cake is springy to the touch and begins to shrink away from the sides of the pan, about 15 minutes.
  4. Roll the Cake: Lay out a tea towel and sprinkle it with confectioners’ sugar. Turn the cake out onto the towel, peel off the paper, trim the edges, and roll the cake up in the towel. Let it cool.
  5. Prepare the Filling: Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the gelatin in the microwave, checking every 15 seconds. Pour the gelatin and sugar over the strawberries. Whip the cream to medium-stiff peaks and fold in the cooled strawberry mixture.
  6. Assemble the Roll: Unroll the cooled cake, spread it with the strawberry cream, and roll it up again. Chill the cake for at least 1 hour.
  7. Finish and Serve: Before serving, dust the cake with confectioners’ sugar or top it with additional whipped cream.

How to Serve Strawberry Cream Roll

Serve this delightful strawberry cream roll chilled, adorned with a light dusting of confectioners’ sugar or a generous dollop of whipped cream. For an extra touch of elegance, garnish with crystallized violets and fresh violet leaves.

How to Store Strawberry Cream Roll

Store the strawberry cream roll in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap or in an airtight container, for up to three days. This will keep the cake fresh and the cream filling firm.
