Autumn is approaching (yay!). And as much as I love autumn, I will miss the hot weather we’ve been having. Will you miss summer, too? Today, I thought I’d bring you another delicious summery dessert recipe before I go and get my autumn baking on. 😉 How about a slice of my Strawberries and Cream Swiss Roll to cure your summer desserts craving? How about two slices?? You’re gonna want two, this cake is so much better than store-bought. I promise.

This is one of my favourite Swiss Roll recipes (and I love making swiss rolls!) and I’m excited to share it with you! This cake is so moist and fluffy, and infused with vanilla. Filled with fresh strawberry sauce and homemade whipped cream, it really is one of the best desserts you’ll ever make this summer, and it’s a real crowd-pleaser. Best make two just to be safe, because they’re gonna ask for seconds!

Ingredients

    For the Strawberry Sauce
  • 1 cup (200g) fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup (100g) caster/granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour/cornstarch
  • For the Cake
  • 4 large eggs, separated, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) caster/granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) greek style yogurt
  • 1 cup (100g) cake flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • For the Filling
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (300ml) heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (60g) icing/powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

    For the Strawberry Sauce
  1. Using a food processor, blend the strawberries and water until smooth. If you want a chunky sauce, simply slice the strawberries into smaller pieces and move on to step 2.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the strawberry puree (or pieces), sugar and cornflour, and stir constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Allow to boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then remove from the heat. Transfer to a small bowl and allow to cool completely.
  3. For the Cake
  4. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease a 10x15-inch cake roll pan, and line the base with parchment paper.
  5. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the egg yolks on high speed until thick and frothy. Gradually beat in the sugar, vanilla, and yogurt. Add the flour and baking powder, and mix well.
  6. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and spread out evenly. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the sides, and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
  8. Invert the cake onto a tea towel dusted with a generous amount of icing/powdered sugar. Gently peel off the parchment paper, dust the cake with more icing sugar, then roll up the cake with the tea towel, starting at a short end. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  9. For the Filling
  10. Using a handheld or stand mixer, whip the heavy cream until it starts to thicken. Add the icing sugar and vanilla and whip to stiff peaks.
  11. Unroll the cake, and spread the strawberry sauce evenly over the cake. Repeat with the whipped cream. (Dollop the cream on top and very gently spread over the jam, trying not to mix the two together.) Re-roll without the tea towel. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Dust with icing/powdered sugar, or garnish with strawberries, then slice and serve.

Notes

*Make your own cake flour! Measure out 1 cup (125g) of plain/all-purpose flour, remove 2 tablespoons and replace with 2 tablespoons of cornflour/cornstarch. Sift well.

    Wow!! How beautiful is this roll? I’ve never attempted to make a dessert roll but from the looks of this one I am going to try! It’s so beautiful! And no…not missing the summer because I’m in AZ and it’s about 100 degrees F until about Nov 1 – so this is perfect to make almost all year round! Thanks for the recipe!!

    Vanilla cake is my all time favorite, probably because I’m allergic to cocoa, but I mean you just CAN’T go wrong with a classic. But you CAN make it even better – by turning it into THIS! This swiss roll is gorgeous, Marsha! LOOOVE the strawberries! Cheers!

    I’m totally excited for autumn too!! And honestly, I can’t wait to see what kind of pumpkin and other fall recipes you whip up! But yeah, I’m also gonna miss summer. Farewell, summer vacay and warm weather. But that’s okay, if we can have a fall version of this roll, then I’ll be happy. 🙂 Gorgeous photos as always, Marsha. Pinning and sharing, of course! xoxo
