Berry cake roll

Cake roll, jelly roll, cream roll or Swiss roll is an easy sponge cake filled with fruit, icing, jam or whipped cream. Even though the name suggests the cake originated from Switzerland it is believed that it originated in Austria in the 19th century. The first mention of a cake roll was actually in a journal published in Utica, New York in 1852. As the name changed for it over the years so did the number of new recipes emerge. Now it seems like every country has its own version of a cake roll, but the most famous is the Christmas log.

Nothing is better than eating cake in the summer, ok maybe eating ice cream, but still cooled down refreshing cake on a patio or in a patisserie will really set your mind at ease while you’re melting in the sun. Nowadays I’m just thinking on which cake to make first, will it be a chocolate ice cream cake or a raspberry cheesecake, but there is a type of cake usually prepared in Christmas time everyone somehow disregards – Cake roll, surprisingly delicious cake which can be prepared in hundreds of different ways. My recipe is for a real summer cake roll, both refreshing and delicious.

Enjoy the sunny days-to-come with this amazing Berry cake roll and share a slice with friends. Enjoy and happy cooking!

  11. Cake Roll, which we call ‘Swiss Roll’ here in South Africa is one of my all time favourite desserts. I make ‘Swiss Roll’ often, but tend to stick to the same filling everytime. Thanks for sharing this. Keen to try this berry filling πŸ™‚
