I can’t think a better summer combo than blueberries and freshly whipped cream, well, except for this blueberries ‘n cream roll cake! Moist sponge cake is rolled up around freshly whipped cream and sweet blueberry preserves. Come on in to my virtual kitchen and I’ll show you how easy it is to make one!
It’s a perfect day to share a dessert recipe with you, because today is my son’s 22nd birthday. Happy 22nd birthday, TJ!
Unfortunately, TJ lives in another part of the country and we haven’t seen each other in a long time, so this blueberries ‘n cream roll cake will have to be sent to him virtually.
Roll cakes look sort of intimidating, but truthfully, I find them to be much easier to make than traditional birthday cakes. That’s because I have hand tremors and horrible hand-eye coordination, so I drive myself batty trying to slice a cake into perfect, even layers. Just so there’s no misunderstanding, the problem is NOT in the baking. I can bake up a cake that is so moist, it’ll melt in your mouth. Just don’t laugh at me, because once it’s decorated, it’ll look like a 5 year-old made it! Want proof? Look at this delicious but disastrous chocolate layer cake (with the world’s BEST frosting) that I made last year. It’s awful looking…but SO danged tasty! LOL
I think it’s much easier to make bundt cakes, like this pomegranate lime bundt cake, or rich and decadent cheesecakes like this whipped cream cheesecake, OR to put fluffy whipped cream on top of moist, tender sponge cake and roll that baby up into a beautiful, delicious dessert like this roll cake!
Roll cakes are really versatile, too. You can add flavored extracts like lemon or orange to your basic cake batter to give it a different flavor, and the filling options are endless. Roll your cake up with fresh fruits, preserves, chopped nuts, candies, chocolates, or just plain and simple whipped cream goodness. It’s completely up to your imagination and your taste buds.
No matter how you make your roll cake, I hope you enjoy it to the fullest!
