Luscious Lemon Cake Roll
Total TimePrep: 1 hour Bake: 10 min. + chilling
LOVE this roll cake, I made the lemon version and then I changed it up a little and instead of lemon, I used a 1/4 cup of strawberry puree which turned out equally as good. Great recipe, easy to follow and is delicious!
This was my first time making a roll cake and I was nervous about the rolling part just because I'd never done it before. It was actually very easy to do and didn't fall apart like I was nervous about it doing. The cake was fluffy and moist, and it balanced out the tartness of the filling perfectly. I accidentally made the filling too thin but that's because I used whipped topping that I made a few days ago. I made it fresh and then it thickened up. I'll be making this cake again in a couple days for my sisters birthday, lemon cake is her favorite. I'll definitely use fresh whipped topping. Oh, and I didn't put the coconut and filling on top, instead I made a quick icing out of milk and powder sugar and drizzled it. When I make it again I will put the filling on top. I was really impressed by how good this was. I highly recommend making it.
Great lemon flavor! I left off the coconut, since my family is not a fan of coconut. Everyone raved about this cake.
I made this for my husbands work thanksgiving lunch. It was easy.tasted good and presentation was nice. My husband does not like coconut,so I left that off i added lemon balm leaves for presentation.. Next time I will add white chocolate curls.Barbara J.
The cake part was great. The filling was way to watery... I had to scrape it off and just used canned lemon icing. And then it was great...
The taste was great! The only thing I did different (after the first try and was not impressed with the size) was DOUBLE the cake part of the recipe...I like my rolled cakes to have some body to it. But it was very tasty!! Will be making again....
Not only would I make this cake again, I've already made it multiple times. It has a light feel to it, so it's perfect after a stressful day. Wonderful flavor, especially for how easy it is to make. The texture of the light cream filling compliments the airy texture of the cake perfectly. I made it without the coconut, since my husband doesn't like it, and it was delicious.
This was a big hit at my house. Loved it.
