Strawberries and Cream Swiss Roll

Strawberries and Cream Swiss Roll

Ingredients
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar for dusting
1 cup fresh strawberries
1 cup heavy cream, chilled
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, for dusting (optional)

Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a jelly roll pan. Line it with buttered foil or buttered parchment paper.

Beat the eggs until thick and lemon colored. Gradually add 1 cup white sugar, beating constantly. Stir in water and vanilla extract. Fold in flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake until cake is springy to the touch and beginning to shrink away from the sides of the pan, about 15 minutes.

Lay out a tea towel, and sprinkle it with confectioners’ sugar. Turn the cake out on the towel. Peel off the paper or foil. Cut away crusty edges with kitchen shears or a sharp paring knife. Roll the cake up in the towel, and leave it to cool.

Whip the cream. Add unflavored gelatin and 1 tablespoon sugar. Fold in strawberries. Unroll the cake. Spread with the strawberry cream, and roll up again. Chill cake for at least 1 hour.

Before serving, dust cake with confectioners’ sugar or top with additional whipped cream.

Strawberry Sunshine Cake

Ingredients
1 cup egg whites (about 7)
5 egg yolks
1-1/2 cups sugar, divided
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon each almond, lemon and vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup ice water

Let egg whites stand for 30 minutes. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed for 5 minutes or until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar. Stir in water and extracts. Sift flour twice; gradually add to yolk mixture and mix well (batter will be very thick).

In a large bowl with clean beaters, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form; set aside. Fold into egg yolk mixture just until blended.

Spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets; smooth the top. Bake at 325° for 50-55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert pan; cool completely.

In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add ice water and stir. Place bowl in ice water for about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Fold in strawberries and 1/2 cup whipped topping.

Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Split horizontally into three layers; place bottom layer on a serving plate. Spread with half of the gelatin mixture. Repeat. Top with remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides with remaining whipped topping. Garnish with strawberries. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 12-16 servings.
