This cream roll recipe ("Biskuitrolle mit frische Frucht") is made just like a jelly roll recipe only it's filled with whipped cream and fresh fruit.
Oh, so German. Oh, so delicious. And, oh, so quick and easy!
At first, I used to think of this as a difficult recipe.
I soon found out, though, that if I just get everything ready before I start, the whole process actually goes quickly.
AND the final result is so stunning!
In fact, the cake over in the right column, the one with the strawberries, was made with the help of my 9-year old granddaughter, Lydia.
The one above was made by my dear friend, Melania.
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!
That's what Quick German Recipes is all about! Taking a recipe and making it you own.
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.
This Cream Roll recipe is best made in the morning and served fresh the same day. Here it's filled with strawberries and whipped cream.
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.
It's also a fun recipe to do with kids. They just can't figure out how one can roll a cake!
Once they see how easy it is to do, and how much fun they had doing it, it's one they'll add to their growing list of their own special recipe.

Here's what some of my fans say:
