FUN ROLL CAKE
Bake with Me, Fun Roll Cake!
This cake is fun to make, easy and believe me, its delicious!
Ingredients you need is:
3/4 cup of sugar
1 table spoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup cake flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Something for the filling of the cake, I used strawberry jelly/jam - you could use anything you like
2 more eggs and sugar for the topping
That's it, that's all you need to make this delicious cake
Ok lets get started!
Turn your oven onto 400 degrees.
Get the 4 eggs and separate the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another bowl. Just make sure your do it gently not to pop the egg yolk into the whites.
When your done with that, get a small bowl and your hand blender and blend up the egg white only, your going to blend it on high speed for like 2 minutes until its like triple the size and hard and fluffy. Set it aside.
Get another small bowl and put the egg yolks in there. Blend it on high speed for like 2 minutes until it is a light yellow, while your blending it, add the sugar little by little and the vanilla extract. It will be double the size, but not like the egg whites.
Get another bowl and get a strainer (the thing you use to drain the water from the rice). Put the strainer on top of the bowl, then put the cake flour, the baking powder, and the salt inside the strainer and start shaking the strainer, you'll see the stuff going through the strainer and looking fluffy, that's what you want.
Add the flour mixture to the egg yolk mix, and blend it together. Then add the egg yolk mix, but this time you don't blend it with the blender, you actually fold it in. All you need to do is get a spoon or something and kind of hand mix it slowly because you still want it to stay fluffy. Do that until its all mixed in and everything is the same color.
Get a long pan, look for the biggest pan you have, its suppose to be 15 X 10 X 1. It doesn't have to be deep, it just has to be big and long, look for the biggest one you have that can go in the oven. Then get aluminum foil and layer the bottom of the pan with aluminum foil and spray it with Pam butter spray or rub a little bit of butter on the aluminum foil and around the whole pan. Don't exaggerate! Then pour your cake mix in the pan. Put it in the oven and bake it for 8 to 10 minutes. Reminder: Never open the oven when baking a cake!
This is what its suppose to look like at this point.
When it comes out the oven, make sure you have a kitchen towel or any medium sized towel on the counter and sprinkle some sugar all over the towel. Go ahead, pour sugar directly on the towel, this will help the hot cake not to stick to the towel. Pour a little less then half a cup of sugar. Loosen the edges and take the cake out of the pan with it still in the aluminum foil, gently turn the cake over while its still hot onto this towel with sugar , then slowly peel of the aluminum foil.
Get a knife and cut of the edges of the cake on all four sides, this is just to get the crispy edges off. Then your going to roll the cake with the towel together. You just roll it up, don't worry its no going to break. It will look like this:Cool the cake like that on a rack or something for 15 minutes.
After the cake is cooled off, unroll it and fill it up with your filling, any filling you want. I used strawberry jelly. You could use any type of jelly, jam, chocolate spread like Nutella, whip cream, anything sweet and creamy that you like.
Spread this filling all over the inside of this cake, spread it from edge to edge. Then re roll the cake, but this time without the towel, OK! Don't be scared to get your hands dirty, you got to roll the cake back up and kind of push the jelly in its place.
When its all rolled up, I want to teach you a topping to cover it with. Some people like this 'Fun Roll Cake' just the way it is, others like it with a topping. If you like it with a topping then follow me.
Get the 2 more eggs that you separated for the topping, separate the whites from the yolk again. Your not going to use the yolks, only the whites. Put the egg whites in a bowl and add like 3 tablespoons of sugar to the egg whites, your going to beat it with the hand blender again just like you did before, for about 2 to 3 minutes on high speed, its going to be fluffy and creamy. Its Marshmallow. Cover the cake with this topping, or any other topping you would like.
