Making the Blueberry Lemon Cake Roll
For the Blueberry Lemon Cake Roll, you will need the following ingredients.
First for the cake:
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ cup powdered sugar
Then for the filling:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
½ cup lemon curd
1 (6 ounce) container blueberries, divided
The toppings will include:
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Blueberries (remaining blueberries from 6-ounce container)
Now how do you make the lemon blueberry cake roll?
First, you need to complete a bit of prep work. For this recipe, preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. You will also need to line a jelly roll pan with buttered foil or parchment paper.
Now that you have everything ready, it’s time to move on to the cake.
Start by beating the eggs. Then you want to add a cup of granulated sugar gradually. Next, stir in the water and vanilla extract. Once this is well mixed, sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Fold the batter together.
Pour the batter into your prepped jelly roll pan. The cake needs to bake for fifteen minutes. When finished the cake will be springy to the touch and start to shrink away from the sides of the pan.
To create the cake roll, lay out a sheet of parchment paper slightly longer than the cake. Sprinkle the paper lightly with powdered sugar. Remove your cake from the foil or parchment paper and cut away the crusty edges of the cake.
Now it is time to roll the cake. You will want to roll the cake up in the parchment paper sprinkled with powder sugar. Once completed, place the cake in the refrigerator to cool.
We now move on to the filling. Start by whipping your heavy whipping cream on high in a stand mixer. Once the cream is thick, fold in the powdered sugar and lemon curd. Mix the filling until it is well combined.
With the filling complete, check to see if your cake is ready. Once your cake is cool remove it from the refrigerator. Gently unroll the cake and use a spatula to spread on the lemon cream filling and top the mixture with the blueberries. Now the cake will need to be rolled back up and refrigerated for at least an hour before serving.
Before serving, garnish the cake by sifting powdered sugar over the entire thing. You can also add a handful of blueberries for an additional pop of color and flavor.
Now there is a secret to slicing a cake roll. If you would like to keep your slices clean, rinse your knife in hot water and dry it between each slice. This technique makes sure your cake is not only delicious but also keeps its beautiful shape.
So there you have it, out of this world flavors all combined in this lovely Lemon Roll Cake with Blueberries. The recipe is perfect for entertaining or a special evening with the family. Try it today!
