Easy Strawberry Cake Roll with Drizzled Chocolate

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.  Doesn’t that sound delicious?!  This cake roll requires very little work but turns out perfect every time!

How to Make an Easy Strawberry Cake Roll:

  • Sift together flour and baking powder and gradually start adding it into the egg and sugar mixture.
  • Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture using a rubber spatula until well combined.  The batter should have a very light and fluffy texture.

  • Transfer the batter onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread evenly. 

  • Bake for 15-17 minutes until light golden color and toothpick comes out clean.

  • As soon as you the cake is done baking, flip it upside down on a clean kitchen towel and carefully take off the parchment paper.
  • Roll the cake together with the towel into a log and leave it rolled up to cool off completely (this takes about 30-40 minutes).

How to Make the Cream with Cool Whip:

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat heavy whipping cream and icing sugar on high speed until light and fluffy (this only takes a minute or two-  Do not over-beat!). 
  • As soon as the cream becomes fluffy, turn off the mixer.  Add strawberries, diced into small cubes, and gently mix with a spatula.
