Top 10 Best Cake Roll Recipes

My memories of cooking in school are not good at all. I can clearly remember what I was asked to cook so recoil is not the issue here, the problem is that I am a rubbish, cook! I will never forget the day I was told to make a Swiss Roll. It was looking OK until the moment came to present it to the teacher and mine rolled out in front of him and ended up as straight as a piece of paper again with everyone around me laughing. So if I can’t make a good one myself maybe it is best that I just bring you images of how a “Cake Roll” should look like, and so without further ado I bring you…

This is what everyone will think of when they think of a cake roll, and with a great guide on how to make it in the ink almost, anyone could make it. Unless you are me then you don’t have a hope. But there are many, many different kinds of cake roll out there as you will see in the others that are still to come.

testedandtasted.blogspot.co.uk/2010/07/oreo-swiss-roll.html

  4. Thanks a lot. Now the healthy salad I’m staring at just isn’t doing it. I blame this post for what I’m going to scarf down next. Could you do like Top Ten Ways not to eat right now?

  5. Other would-be culinary triumphs of mine have come undone, and I could see myself having the same problem with cake rolls as you did with your first one — it’s only cake, though, and I know I just need to take the plunge and try it.

  6. Funny story! I have always found cake rolls intimidating to the point of never having tried one — very sad indeed. These all look so good!

  7. Well, let me think… it’s like a pumpkin cheesecake. The cake part is like pumpkin pie in a moist, spongy cake and the filling is a cheesecake filling. OMG! Now I’m hungry for it! lol

  8. Yes, it is Japanese I think and they are delicious. They aren’t as big as a yam or sweet potato, at least the ones we brought weren’t, but it certainly didn’t affect the taste any. I would say it is a root vegetable.

  9. I will eventually be posting recipes for pumpkin pie and a few others. The pie is very spicy with black pepper as one of the ingredients but I have milder versions too. I’ll let you know when I get them posted.

  10. Well I think you might well be right because after a few searches it does seem that you are right! Spotted dick and custard. I never liked the taste of it myself and never had it in a cake roll form.

  11. Let’s All Eat Cake!!! I’m sure #4 is what my grandmother referred to as “Spotted Dick Pudding” … she never made it for me, so this will from now into the future be the visual impression of that dessert. BTW did you know that “dessert” is stressed spelled backwards … cake always sends stress backwards, don’t you think?

  12. If I tried all of them, I would be so much more fluffy and Rubenesque than I already am. We have had the purple yams just baked and they are wonderful – now I know something else to make with them. I would definitely go for anything chocolate because Money Talks But Chocolate Sings. Pumpkin looks delightful as well and there is nothing like fresh ripe raspberries. I’ll risk it and have a go.

  13. I must retract my earlier “I don’t like chocolate” statement – I forgot that I love, absolutely love!, swiss rolls – How could I forget such a thing? And publicly, to boot! LOL

    I do have to say my favorite part of the holiday season from November to December is that usually, at some point, my mom will make a pumpkin roll – – after a childhood of watching her struggle to get the thing out of the pan and then roll it without it breaking, I never even considered trying to make any type of rolled cakes – – I just lurk about the kitchen doors of those who do, waiting for the invite to come in and have a bite… 🙂

  14. oh my gosh… you need to stop doing that to me! I’m all about eating clean and healthy …this just makes me crave cake now. wuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  15. The minute I saw the pecans I fell in love and got hungry again. Ahh! And I love red velvet, but it totally does not overpower my love and desire for pecans. Hmm. Sounds so tasty. :p

  16. I’m sure they are all delicious, with the exception of the taro root roll, doesn’t sound appealing to me…the Swiss Roll opening up is something that would happen to me…my first cake (I was 12) was so lop sided the top layer began sliding off the bottom…not a pretty cake…tasted good though 🙂

  17. My mom makes the most amazing pumpkin roll! They truly are delicious 🙂 When I was growing up, she used to make us 1 cake roll a month. We LOVED those days. 🙂

  18. I’ll give the pumpkin roll a thumbs up. I cook with pumpkins (really winter squash) in pies, cakes, pasta sauces, bean soup, pumpkin soup, pumpkin hummus and more. I’m a fan of all foods pumpkin.

  19. Kawaii Deco Roll Cake is very popular in Asia now. I have seen a few people posting pictures on fb. I don’t think I have the patience to make that.

  20. that is weird, I never heard of the stuff they made it from. might have to look that up. curious now.

  21. I love the oreo and red velvet rolls, they look great and I bet they taste great too. Reading your blog is not good for my waistline. I will have to make sure I feast with my eyes only! Although I am definitely going to make the mint cupcakes from your cupcake post.

  22. Your story reminds me of baking hot cross buns in school once, mine didn’t rise and ended up in the bin…no one owned up when the teacher saw them either. These all look way too good, and I’ve just decided to make one for Easter – with lots of little eggs of course.

  23. Luckily I have just eaten, or I would be drooling on the keyboard! I have to say that I think the pumpkin and pecan one looks plastic – so I’m afraid it gets the thumbs down from me despite liking both pecans and pumpkins. The polka dot one looks great, and I wouldn’t mind trying (to eat, not bake) the jam and cannoli one.

  24. I love your yummy blogs….well I love pretty much all your blogs, but this one tops many. The reason being is that I love to bake and the red velvet one had my taste buds doing the cha-cha 🙂

  25. Oh my gosh these cake rolls sound an look amazing! Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog. I love the idea of your blog, I shall definitely follow you.

  26. another 5 lbs gained. sighhh. still it won’t stop me from looking at all this delish cake! wow. I love #1 because I love raspberries and red velvet cake. nom nom nom The polka dot ones are pretty good looking too. Now I can cook. really well, but bake? nope. really isn’t for me. Strange huh? 😉

  27. I have to quit looking at your blog when I’m hungry!! I loved the polka dot one, but I wonder how many actually remember “an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini”? Boy, that brings back (very dusty) memories!

Which one did you like?
