It’s a perfect day to share a roll cake recipe with you, because today is my son’s birthday, and what’s a birthday without cake?!
Unfortunately, he lives in another part of the country, so we haven’t seen each other in a long time. This cake roll will have to be sent to him virtually.

Roll cakes, or is it cake rolls? Anyway, they look sort of intimidating to make, but truthfully, I find them to be much easier than traditional layer 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. However, once it’s decorated, it’ll look like a 5 year-old made it!  Want proof?

I think it’s much easier to make bundt cakes, like pomegranate lime bundt cake, or rich and decadent cheesecake, like this whipped cream cheesecake. Easier still, place homemade blueberry preserves and fluffy whipped cream on top of moist, tender sponge cake.

Then roll that baby up into a beautiful, delicious dessert like this blueberries and cream roll cake!

Roll cake recipes are really versatile, too. You can add flavored extracts or essential oils like lemon or orange to your basic cake batter, and the filling options are endless.  Roll your cake up with fresh fruits, preserves, chopped nuts, candies, chocolate ganache, or just plain and simple whipped cream goodness.  It’s completely up to your imagination and your taste buds.

Blueberries 'n Cream Roll Cake

Cook Time 12 mins Serves 10 slices

Prep and Chill Time: 02:20

Ingredients

    FOR THE CAKE

    • 4 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 3/4 cup sifted cake flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • Confectioners' sugar

    FOR CREAM FILLING

    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 cup blueberry preserves
    • Fresh blueberries (optional)
    • Additional whipped cream (optional)

    Directions

    Heat oven to 375° F.
    MAKE THE CAKE:
    Grease a standard size jelly roll pan, then line with waxed paper and grease the paper. That will assure that none of your cake will stick to the waxed paper.
    In the bowl of a hand or stand mixer, beat eggs and vanilla on high speed for 5 minutes, or until lemon-colored. Turn speed to medium and gradually add sugar, beating until dissolved.
    In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Fold gently into egg mixture just until combined. Pour batter into prepared jelly roll pan and use a spatula to spread it evenly across the pan.
    Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light brown and edges start to pull away from sides of pan. Turn hot cake out, waxed paper side up, onto a lint free, clean kitchen towel that has been well dusted with confectioners’ sugar. Peel waxed paper away from cake, Starting on short side of cake, roll up cake tightly into the towel and allow to cool completely.

    MAKE FILLING:
    Place metal mixing bowl and whisk attachment (or beaters for a hand mixer) into the freezer for 10 minutes.
    Place heavy cream into chilled bowl and whip on high speed until soft peaks have been formed. With mixer still running on high speed, lightly sprinkle sugar into cream and continue mixing on high for 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy.

    ASSEMBLY:
    Unroll cake from towel and use a spatula to spread whipped cream evenly over the cake. Use an offset spatula or knife to apply jam in an even layer on top of whipped cream. Roll up the cake again and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and garnish with blueberries and additional whipped cream, if desired.

        Thanks, Karen. When I made this cake, the blueberries weren’t quite beautiful yet, so I used frozen, but they’re coming into the stores in a major way now… time to make another cake 🙂
