Laced Pattern Roll Cake

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Red food coloring
  • 6 strawberries
  • Whipped Cream:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons sugar

Steps

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • For the roll cake batter: In a medium bowl, add egg yolks, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, water and oil, mixing well after each addition. Sift the flour into the bowl and mix until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites. Add remaining sugar gradually, stirring after each addition until reaches stiff peaks.
  • Add a ladleful of meringue into the egg yolk batter and mix well using a whipper, then switch to a spatula and add the remaining meringue in two portions, mixing gently.
  • Place a ladleful of batter into a small bowl. Add red food dye into the remaining batter.
  • Put the plain batter into a pastry bag, and draw lace patterns on the parchment paper. Bake for 1 minute, then remove from oven and pour the pink batter on top. Bake for 12 minutes, then let cool.
  • For the whipped cream: Beat heavy cream and sugar together until soft peaks form.
  • Add a layer of whipped cream over the cooled cake, then place strawberries in a line across the bottom. Roll cake up from the front to the back. Place in refrigerator to cool for at least 3 hours.
  • Slice and serve.
