Raspberry Roll Cake #NationalRaspberryCakeDay #SundayFunday

Today the Sunday Funday group is sharing raspberry cake recipes. Thanks to Stacy of Food Lust People Love, Sue of Palatable Pastime, Rebekah of Making Miracles, and Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm for coordinating this low-stress group. This week, I am hosting and suggested we share recipes to celebrate National Raspberry Cake Day which is tomorrow, Sunday, July 31st. Because most of the country is in a heat wave, I told the bloggers to be creative...they didn't even have to turn on the oven! Here's the list of recipes...

Raspberry Roll Cake

When we went to the farmers' market this week, I had hoped to find either black raspberries or golden raspberries. There were none to be had. Drat. Regular raspberries it was! We also picked up some beautiful blueberries and gooseberries. But those would work for this theme either, so we just ate those by the handful!


  • 5 large eggs, separated
  • ½ cup flour, sifted
  • ½ cup organic granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • organic powdered sugar
  • Also needed: parchment paper

  • 2/3 cup raspberry jam or preserves
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 3 Tablespoons organic powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces fresh organic raspberries, divided

  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 3 Tablespoons organic powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces fresh organic raspberries, divided


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9" x 13" baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

Place egg whites in a large mixing bowl and beat until soft peaks form. Add the egg yolks one at the time until well-combined.

Add the flour, vanilla, and sugar. Mix until those are incorporated evenly.

Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly to the edges with a spoon. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Invert the cake onto a clean parchment paper and gently peel the original parchment from the cake.

Roll up the cake loosely from one short side - with the paper inside. Let it cool completely.

When the cake is completely cooled, gently unroll the cake and spread the raspberry preserves into a very thin layer over the entire surface.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until medium peaks form. In a smaller bowl, gently mash half of the fresh raspberries with a fork, then fold them into the whipped cream.

Spread the raspberry whipped cream out on top of the raspberry preserves, leaving a 1-inch border along the edges. Distribute the remaining raspberries over the cream layer, pressing them gently into the filling.

Carefully roll the cake into a tight spiral. Place the cake seam-side down. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour before finishing for serving.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until stiff peaks form. You can just spread this on top; I opted to place the cream in a piping bag and piped some quick squiggles on top. Dot the top of the cake with the fresh raspberries and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Slice with a serrated knife into thick rounds. Serve immediately!

That's a wrap for our July 31st Sunday Funday event. We'll be back with recipes that feature sprouts. Stay tuned!


  1. This looks delicious, wish I could get a slice!

  2. Camilla, Raspberry Roll Cake looks so tempting. Must admit have not baked a roll cake as yet as I feel it might break on rolling. Got to give your recipe a try.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
