Simple Strawberry Cream Roll


Dry Ingredients

  • 150 grams (1.25 cups) flour
  • 200 grams (1 cup) sugar

Wet Ingredients

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 100 ml (0.5 cups) vegetable oil
  • 200 ml (1 cup) milk


  • 6 egg whites
  • 200 grams (1 cup) sugar


  • 200 grams (1 cup) cream cheese
  • 200 ml (1 cup) heavy cream
  • 100 grams (0.5 cups) powdered sugar
  • 200 grams (1 cup) strawberry yogurt


  • Fresh strawberries (or any berries)


  • Electric Mixer

    You'll need this to whip up those egg whites into stiff peaks. A hand mixer works just fine!

  • Baking Trays

    Non-stick baking trays make it easy to pop your cake in and out without any hassle.

  • Baking Paper

    Lining your trays with baking paper ensures your cake layers don't stick. It also makes cleanup a breeze!

  • Mixing Bowls

    Having several mixing bowls helps streamline the process. You don't want to mix wet and dry ingredients in the same bowl prematurely.

  • Spatula

    A rubber spatula is perfect for gently folding in the egg whites without deflating them.


Step 1

Prepare the Batter

Whip the egg whites with the sugar until stiff peaks form.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour and remaining sugar.
In another bowl, mix the egg yolks, vegetable oil, and milk.
Combine the dry ingredients with the yolk mixture, then gently fold in the whipped egg whites.

Step 2


Split the batter into two equal parts.
Preheat the oven to 180Β°C (350Β°F).
Bake each part for 10 minutes until done.
Once baked, drench the cake layers lightly with some strawberry juice or syrup.
Cover with a towel and let cool completely.

Step 3

Make the Cream

Combine the cream cheese, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and strawberry yogurt.
Mix until smooth and creamy.

Step 4

Assemble the Rolls

Spread the cream over the cooled cake layers.
Add the fresh strawberries or other berries as desired.
Roll the cake layers as shown in the video.
You can make 2 large rolls or 16 mini rolls.

Gluten-Free and Vegan Variations

Yes, you can still enjoy these delightful rolls even with dietary restrictions! πŸŒ±πŸ’š

Gluten-Free Variation:

Substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend. Double-check your baking powder to ensure it's gluten-free as well.

Vegan Variation:

Replace the egg yolks and egg whites with aquafaba (the liquid from a can of chickpeas). For the cream, use dairy-free cream cheese, coconut cream instead of heavy cream, and a vegan berry yogurt. Ensure your sugar is vegan-friendly!


  • What if I don't have an electric mixer?

    You can use a whisk, but it will take longer to achieve stiff peaks for the egg whites. Arm workout bonus! πŸ’ͺ

  • Can I use other types of berries?

    Absolutely! This recipe works well with raspberries, blueberries, and even mixed berries. Experiment with your favorite combinations.

  • How do I prevent the cake from cracking when rolling?

    Make sure your cake is completely cooled before you start rolling. Rolling the cake slowly and gently also helps a lot.

  • Can I make these rolls ahead of time?

    The rolls can be made a day in advance. Just be sure to store them in an airtight container in the fridge. They'll stay fresh and delicious!

  • How can I make the cream more stable?

    Adding a teaspoon of cornstarch to the cream mixture can help it hold its shape better, especially if you plan to make these for an outdoor event.

  • What’s the best way to cut the rolls neatly?

    Use a sharp knife and clean it between each slice. This will keep the presentation tidy and professional-looking.
