This cream roll recipe ("Biskuitrolle") is made just like a jelly roll recipe only it's filled with whipped cream and fresh fruit. This is best made in the morning and served fresh the same day. Above it's filled with strawberries and whipped cream.
If you get everything ready before you start, the whole process actually goes quickly. AND the final result is so stunning! In fact, the Blueberry Cream Roll, shown below with the step-by-step photos, was made with the help of my 9-year old granddaughter, Lydia.
Oh, so German. Oh, so delicious. And, oh, so quick and easy!
It needs a bit of time to cool before filling and should stand a bit in the fridge before serving. With a bit of careful planning, this really goes together quite quickly.
For the fruit, you can use almost any variety. Sliced strawberries, fresh or frozen raspberries, currants, diced or sliced peaches, blueberries, etc., all work nicely.
Even a combination of fruit would be nice. Above is with strawberries, below with blueberries. And at the very top, filled with buttercream filling.
The one below was made by my dear friend, Melania. She then invited me over to enjoy it. Yummy, yummy scrumptious!
She filled this with her secret buttercream filling. She hinted it's pudding, butter and icing sugar. That's simple. Love how she took my cream roll recipe and turned it into hers!

Here's what some of my fans say:
Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!
Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.
Lori S: This is the best split pea soup I ever made! It disappeared faster than any other soup I have made. It is so easy to prepare the night before an throw together before I leave for work, I will definitely use it often!
Sunetra C: Das sieht aber lecker aus.
