Sponge Roll With Whipped Cream & Strawberries

Hi everyone! Today I wanna share a recipe I tried last weekend for a family dinner. It was the first time for me to try and make sponge cake, I was nervous! But actually it turned out to be quite easy, so you all can try this recipe. Let me know!

Ingredients for the sponge roll:
120 gr flour
120 gr sugar
4 eggs
pinch of salt
vanilla extract
confectioners sugar

Ingredients for the filling:
heavy cream
strawberries

Preheat the oven at 180°C

While the eggs are still cold separate the yolks in one bowl and the whites in another bowl.  
Place the egg yolks along with the sugar in your electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on high speed for five minutes, or until thick, pale yellow, and fluffy. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Sift the flour over the beaten egg mixture and fold in gently with a rubber spatula, just until the flour is incorporated.
In a clean bowl, with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites with the salt until foamy. Gently fold the whites into the batter. 



Line a pan with parchment paper. Pour the batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly with a spatula. Bake for about 10 minutes at 180°C or until golden brown. Immediately upon removing the cake from the oven sprinkle with confectioners sugar and then invert the cake onto a clean dish towel. Remove the parchment paper, sprinkle with confectioners sugar, and roll up the sponge, with the towel. Place on a wire rack to cool. 



Place your mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for 15 minutes. Then place the whipping cream, into the bowl and beat until stiff peaks form. Add the strawberries and fold gently with a spatula. I also added cinnamon because I love it!



Unroll the sponge, spread with the cream and reroll. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours. 


Just before serving, dust with confectioners sugar e decorate with the remaining strawberries. Enjoy!



Love, Fede
