Strawberry Cream Cake Roll

There are plenty of strawberry patches near my hometown, and soon they'll be brimming with red berries. I discovered this recipe a few summers ago and have made it often. Believe me, it tastes as good as it looks!

    Made fast as guests came out of the blue. Excellent cake. It is not extremely light and fluffy - however very delicious, a nice balance of the moist cake, cream and fruit. 10 servings ? Not at all, 2 of us were ready to finish it off entirely between ourselves.... luckily we didn't as there were other hungry people there to also enjoy it.

    The issue with this recipe is that a step is missing, in order for the cake to be light you need to separate the eggs and beat the whites until stiff peaks form. You then fold the whites into the other mixture after it has been beaten. You do not want to over mix the egg whites when folding them in to the mixture, just until mixed then spread in the pan trying not to over work. You will have a nice sponge to the cake.

    I made the cake recipe twice just to make sure I did not screw it up... and no... The recipe is not right. The cake was thin, firm, and rubbery..... I finally had to just find another cake recipe and use the filling from this page... I am an expierienced baker and cake decorator... This is horrible... try this one
