Makes about 10-12 servings

3/4 cup (95g) all-purpose flour
1 tsp (4g) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2g) salt
4 eggs
3/4 cup (150g) sugar
1 tsp (5g) vanilla extract
2 tbsp (28g) vegetable oil, like canola oil, etc

Strawberry Jam Filling
10 oz (300g) strawberries, cut into smaller pieces
1/4 cup (50g) sugar
1 tbsp (15ml) water

Cream Cheese Filling
9 oz (250g) cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup (240g) whipping cream, chilled
1/2 cup (60g) powdered sugar
1 tsp (5g) vanilla extract

For dusting
Powdered sugar

1. Prepare the strawberry jam filling. In a small saucepan put the strawberries, sugar and water. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Press the strawberries with the back of the spoon to speed up the process. Simmer until the mixture is thick, for about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely before using.

2. Prepare the cake. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Butter a 12X16 inch (30×40 cm) baking tray and line it with parchment paper.

3. In a medium bowl whisk flour with baking powder and salt. Set aside.

4. In a large bowl add eggs, sugar and vanilla extract. Beat with an electric mixer until lemon yellow and foamy. Add oil and mix until well incorporated. Gradually add flour mixture.

5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking tray and spread evenly into the corners using the back of the spatula.

6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Take a kitchen towel and generously sprinkle with powdered sugar. This helps the cake not stick to the towel. Flip the cake over the towel. Remove the parchment paper and dust with powdered sugar.

7. While still hot roll the cake up in the towel. You will have to do it while is still hot/warm otherwise it cracks. Let cool completely.

8. Prepare the cream cheese filling. In a bowl, beat cream cheese with powdered sugar and vanilla. In another bowl whip the cream with an electric mixer until it forms stiff peaks. Fold together.

9. Unroll the cake and spread the strawberry filling evenly over the cake.

10. Spread the cream cheese filling on top of the strawberry filling.

11. Roll the cake back up. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

12. Sprinkle with more powdered sugar before serving and decorate with fresh strawberries.

  1. I just made this today and its really delicious my kids love it, the filling instead of strawberries i used a purple yam. Thank you very much for sharing your recipes.

  2. I just started baking and I wanted to try this because it looked amazing. After quite a bit of sweat and praying, I finally finished this recipe and it was lovely. There was a nice contrast between the sweet cream cheese and the sugary tart flavor of the jam. At first, I thought that it was going to be too sweet because there is sugar added to all of the components (fillings, cake, and outer decoration) but the cake was fluffy and light which balanced the sweetness very nicely. Thanks for this video!

  3. I'm sorry if this is a silly question, for the whipping cream, was it heavy cream that you whipped until you achieved stiff peaks?
