Peach Roll Cake

peach roll cake

Found an old missing photo from last year. This was a cake I made for my in-laws when I invited them for lunch at our place back in September.

Last year we had a fire accident and made us homeless for about a month. So we stayed at my mum-in-law’s and my husband’s grandmother’s for a couple of weeks. And this was a cake I made for them when I invited them to a thank-you lunch at our place. Just something simple. One of my favourite sweet. A roll cake.

This kind of cake is perfect for spring or summer. Very refreshing and light sweets.

Original recipe here.

    Ingredients #1:

    • 5 egg yolks
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 40ml vegetable oil
    • 60ml water
    • 80g all purpose flour
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • ½ tsp salt

    Ingredients #2:

    • 150g egg white
    • 40g caster sugar
    • 15g corn starch

    Filling:

    • fresh peach, cubed
    • raspberry jam
    • whipped cream

    Topping:

    • whipped cream
    • roasted sliced almond
    • grated chocolate

    How to:

    • Preheat oven to 175°C. Prepare 24x24cm baking pan. Greased.
    • Ingredients #1: In a large bowl, whisk egg yolk and sugar until light and pale. While keep beating the yolk, add oil. Add water. Add flour, salt and vanilla (the batter should be thick). Set aside.
    • Ingredients #2: In another bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Add sugar little by little and whisk until soft peak. And add corn starch. Mix with spatula just until everything is incorporated.
    • Pour half of the batter #1 to the meringue and fold gently until everything is mixed. Pour the rest of the batter #1 and continue to fold gently with meringue-batter mixture.
    • Pour cake batter to the prepared cake pan, and tap the pan a couple of times to the kitchen table to get rid of the air bubble inside the batter.
    • Bake the cake in 170 – 175° C for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is slightly light brown.
    • Take the cake out from the oven and let it cool down a bit. When it’s still warm, roll the cake right away to avoid cracks. Set aside and let it cool completely.
    • When it’s cool, unroll the cake carefully and spread some cream, jam and fruits (anything you like, really). Roll it back again peel the baking paper and put it in the fridge until ready to serve.

    Sorry about the photos though, unusual style because we were in hurry. Everyone was waiting for the cake 😀

    1. This kind of cake remind me my childhood… but I’ve never eaten it with peaches… it sounds great! I hope that everything can be fine with your house now!

      • Roll cake is a classic. The one I used to eat when I was little is just a plain sponge cake with jam. Cream is expensive in Indonesia. Everything is well with our apartment now, just hoping it won’t ever happen to us in the future. Thank you, Margherita 🙂

      • I’m sorry if the method is little bit confusing and making it look difficult. But it’s actually not. Pretty much the same method as making sponge cake but with different method by separating the yolks and whites. Give it a try 😉

        • Oh no don’t get me wrong I’m just a bit of a nervous baker! Mains are my comfort zone 🙂

        • I can understand that. With foods you still can add this and that at the end of the cooking time if it doesn’t taste right. But you can’t really do that with baked goods. But maybe you can try to bake something easy like cupcake or muffin? They’re very forgiving 😀

      • Hehehe.. More like because I made the the cake at the last minute and didn’t have time to take proper photo shoot before my in-laws are coming 😀

    A nice comment will make my day ^^
