This Month our Baking Bloggers group stepped up to the challenge:
Bake your best Filled Cakes: Buche de Noel, Tortes, Chocolate rolls, a cake with filling of some type.
I love filled cakes. Most any kind of filling works for me. Grape jelly or strawberry jam inside a tightly rolled sponge cake. Fluffy vanilla cream in a dark chocolate roll or traditional cream cheese in a pumpkin roll are on my list.
Then there is Espresso Chocolate Cream Cake Roll. Smooth and creamy chocolate made with a cooked custard.
It’s like having your coffee and cake in one bite. Okay you can still have your cup or two of coffee. I’ll even join you!


Here’s a few tips for getting that perfect roll:

  • Grease your jelly roll pan bottom. Fit a sheet of parchment on top. Grease and flour the paper and sides of the pan
  • Don’t over bake. Dry sponge cake cracks and a hard texture does not roll. Trust me, no amount of filling will make it moist again.
  • Loosen the cake around the edges. Let the cake cool slightly, remove the paper then dust with powdered sugar, cocoa or a mixture of the two before placing a clean linen towel on top. Leave 1 1/2 to 2 inches of towel hang off the pan. This will make that curl which makes a tight rolled cake.
  • Roll the towel up with the cake and let it set at room temperature 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Leave about a 1/2-inch of exposed cake on all sides. That space is your buffer in case the filling oozes a bit. When cake is cold and set cut the ends off.
