I’ve NEVER been more excited about a dessert in my life! No lie! My friend Angel is a great cook and she came up with this delicious recipe. I give her BIG props! I almost ran to the kitchen to make it after she gave me the recipe. I made two different versions to try and really enjoy them both!
This first one has a cream cheese and whipped cream filling. I topped it with berries!
The second version I made had a filling of chocolate pudding that I made by adding 1 TBS of cocoa to the Nighty Night Custard and a layer of whipping cream! I just made one serving of the custard for my filling. You could do so many flavors!
I know, right?!! They taste as good as they look…probably better! The possibilities are endless for the filling. I say this is a Fuel Pull because the cake part is a Fuel Pull. It can stay that way by the fillings you choose or it can become an E or an S. Both of my recipes I’ve shown are “S” cakes because of the whipping cream and cream cheese. You could do a lovely “E” by adding sweetened Greek Yogurt and a filling with blueberries or peaches! OH MAN! :) If you cooked the fruit down a bit with some sweetener and a little Gluccomanan it would make a lovely filling! A thin layer of filling is best since it will ooze out if you don’t.
Rockin’ Roll Cake! (FP)
- 8 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup of Truvia/Xylitol or Erythritol
- 2 scoops of Swanson’s Premium Whey Protein Powder (Vanilla)
First, beat the egg whites until they are frothy and forming peaks! Then add in the remaining ingredients and gently stir them in until they are well mixed together. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Use an extra large baking sheet for one large cake or a regular sized sheet to make two smaller cakes. I did this and made two versions. Pour the mix on the baking sheet in a nice layer but, not too thick. Here is what mine looked like.
Bake the cake at 350 for about 8 minutes! It was just slightly browning on top. Here is my baked cake from the oven.
Let the cake cool!! I was a bit hasty and was dying to taste mine. Please just be patient and wait till it cools a bit and it will come right off the paper! While I was waiting for mine to cool, I had made up a bowl of homemade whipped cream. I just sweeten mine with a little Truvia and I add a little vanilla or almond extract for flavor. For the first cake roll I made, I had softened a bar of cream cheese and beat it with some sweetener and vanilla as well. I took half the whipped cream and mixed it together with the softened cream cheese mixture. When it was nice and smooth it was ready for the cake! My cake had cooled off by now and I had flipped it over so the smooth top side would be the outside of the finished cake roll. I used a spatula and put a nice layer of the cream cheese/whipped cream mix on the cake. Then you just roll it up!! You can wrap it up in plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator. I think it tastes really good no matter when you eat it but, I did love it even more after it had chilled for a while!
My friend Angel has made many versions of this now. She made a cream cheese and pumpkin filling for one. This Sunday at our church potluck, she had used raspberries that she’d cooked down in sweetener and a layer of whipped cream. YUM! You could even flavor the cake with lemon extract or any other flavors you enjoy! You could even add some unsweetened cocoa powder and make a chocolate roll! Angel even added some cinnamon to her cream cheese filling to make a cinnamon roll flavor for breakfast! The possibilities are endless! I would say if you make two rolls each would serve about 8 folks. One large cake would serve about 16. I may or my not have eaten two pieces. :)
I hope you enjoy this cake as much as we did! Here is my little Valentine’s Day picture!
