“No DREAM is too big. No challenge is too great.”
Do you believe in that?
And even if you don’t let’s dream together today. Let’s make the Strawberry Buttercream Roulade.
For this cake you need only a few ingredients:
eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder.
NOTICE: Buy organic eggs if you want your cake to be in gorgeous, yellow color.
(Visit your local Farmers Market and support your community)
Now, let’s make it happen.
Follow the recipe below.
Strawberry Buttercream Roulade
6 eggs, separated
6 TBSP sugar
6 TBSP flour (AP)
1/8 tsp baking powder
Separate egg whites from yolks.
Whisk the egg whites in a bowl to form stiff peaks.
Gradually add the sugar. (S-L- O-W-L-Y!!!)
Then add egg yolks. Mix.
Gently fold in the flour and baking powder, so that you lose as little air as possible.
Pour the mixture evenly into the pan.
Bake from 10 to 15 min at 375 F.
How do you know if your cake is done?
Insert toothpick into your cake. If comes out clean – cake is baked.
Now, if you finish baking the cake prepare yourself for the next step! It is very, very important step.
Prepare two wet kitchen towel. (Kitchen towels must be wet with warm water).
So, you will have the following situation:
Bottom wet towel + Your CAKE + Top wet towel
After 30 min. check if you can roll up the cake. Please start with a short side of the cake.
If cake refuses to cooperate and still wants to stay straight, please wet the top kitchen towel again.
Cover the cake with wet towel and after 10 min try to roll up. It will work.
Unroll the cake, then spread the Strawberry Buttercream filling, leaving a 1 inch border all around the edges.
Using both hands, roll the cake up.
Then wrap in cling wrap or wet towel and refrigerate. (Also, you can keep it in the freezer)

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
Made from fresh strawberries – Yes, it it homemade!

Core the strawberries to remove the white center.
Place cleaned strawberries in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
You will have about 1 and 1/4 cup of puree.

Place strawberry puree in a small saucepan over a medium heat.
Bring mixture to a simmer, stirring often. Simmer for about 30 min or until the mixture is reduced to 1/3 of the original volume.
Place the reduced puree into the fridge to allow to cool.
