Oma's Cream Roll Recipe with Fresh Fruit 

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Oma's delicious German cream rolls!

This cream roll recipe, aka 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 is filled with strawberries and whipped cream. Check below for info about the photo.

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!

7.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!

Blueberry Cream Roll

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!

Oma says:

The cream roll is a fun recipe to do with kids. They just can't figure out how one can roll a cake!

Grab a copy of my own German Cake e-Cookbook in English to help you relive wonderful memories of Oma's kitchen. 

Sharing traditional German cakes, made using easily available ingredients, ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our heritage.

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 recipes.
