I love making cakes like this Strawberry Roll, as they are very easy to make and take much less time than a regular cake would. You don’t need to bake few layers like you normally would for a standard cake, it takes only 30 minutes to make the batter and bake it! And then all you have to do is prepare a very simple light cream with fresh strawberries.
I bet that you’ve never met a 4-ingredient cake like this one. You heard me: only four ingredients! With a quick mix, bake, and roll, you can put this strawberry cake together in no time at all.
Have you ever made a recipe that turned out perfect every time? I have: this Strawberry Cake Roll! Every single component of this recipe is super simple and pleases with every bite.
Combining simple and soft cake with a sweet cream was a delicious combination to start, but one thing was missing: the chocolate drizzle! I thought, “why would I complicate that?” So, I melted some chocolate chips and they did the job perfectly. They’re my cherry-on-top! Doesn’t that sound delicious?
