This old fashioned dessert is beautiful and gives various textures as well as flavor. You can use any basic jelly roll as well as your favorite whipped cream type mousse or fluff. This recipe is more about the idea and assembly behind this lovely dessert.
Ingredients for fluff
16 ounce container frozen strawberries thawed according to package directions
1 small container whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbs. lemon juice
A few fresh strawberries for garnish
Blend strawberries so it’s not too chunky, add lemon juice and mix.
Whip cream with sugar until fairly stiff. Fold together whipped cream and strawberries. Let set in refrigerator until needed.
You can use any basic white jelly roll recipe. I have used a variety of recipes and any basic one will do.
I spread strawberry jam on the jelly roll and roll it up.
How this all comes together
Slice half of the jelly roll into 1 inch pieces and the other half into thinner slices. Use a small spring form pan. Stand the thicker jelly roll slices up along the sides of the pan and line the bottom with thinner slices making a crust. Spread strawberry fluff on top and refrigerate or freeze. After several hours decorate the top with whipped cream and fresh strawberries. Remove ring from pan. Transfer to a serving tray and serve.
