Nutella Strawberry Swiss Roll Cake


For Chocolate Sponge Cake:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coffee extract or emulsion
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder

For Nutella Whipped Cream:

  • 13 oz jar Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups heavy cream, chilled
  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • cocoa powder, for dusting
  • extra strawberries for garnish
  • 1/2 cup sweet wine, for soaking cake
  • OR
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F/177C and line a large baking sheet (13×18-inches) with parchment paper, leaving the sides ungreased. Prepare the sponge cake first: place the eggs and sugar into a stand mixer bowl and whisk on high speed for 7 to 9 minutes, until the eggs are almost white in color, thick and voluminous. Next, add in the vanilla and coffee extracts and whisk again for 30 seconds.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and stir together. Sift the dry ingredients into the eggs in small batches, folding gently but thoroughly from the bottom of the mixing bowl after each addition; keep the eggs as fluffy as possible. Pour the prepared batter into your baking sheet and spread evenly to the edges. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, just until the top is set.
  3. Immediately after removing the cake from the oven, run a knife or spatula along the edge to release it from the pan. Using a sifter, dust the top of the cake lightly with additional cocoa powder. Lay a clean kitchen towel over the top of the cake, then gently invert it onto a cooling rack. Peel away the parchment paper and dust the second side of the cake with cocoa powder. While the cake is still hot, gently roll it into a tight log and set it onto a cool rack to cool completely (place into the freezer to cool quickly). Watch my video recipe to see how it’s done!
  4. Next, prepare the Nutella whipped cream. Place the softened butter and the Nutella into a mixer bowl and whisk for 2 to 3 minutes, until creamy, fluffy and well combined. Add in the chilled heavy cream (make sure it’s really cold!) and mix on medium speed for 30 seconds. Stop to scrape down the mixing bowl, then mix again on high speed for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, just until stiff peaks form; do not overmix!
  5. Gently unroll the cooled cake and use a pastry brush to lightly soak the cake with sweet wine or simple syrup. Then spread the Nutella whipped cream evenly to the edges with an off-set spatula, reserving 1 cup for garnishing the top. Spread the chopped strawberries in an even layer over the frosting, then roll the cake back up gently but firmly the same way. Place a serving tray at the end of the cake roll to effortlessly roll the cake right onto the platter. Watch my video recipe to see how it’s done!
  6. Transfer the remaining frosting into a pastry bag; I used Ateco tip #829. Add dollops or swirls of cream on top of the cake and garnish with additional fresh strawberries. I recommend refrigerating the cake for at least an hour before enjoying. Keep the cake refrigerated when not enjoying.

Baileys Cheesecake



  • 35 Oreos (3 cups | 403g Oreo crumbs)
  • 4 tbsp (56g) unsalted butter, melted (salted or unsalted is fine)


  • 24 ounces (678g) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup (207g) sugar
  • 3 tbsp (24g) all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (173g) sour cream, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature

Chocolate Ganache

  • 4 oz (113g | 2/3 cup) semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) Baileys Irish Cream
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) heavy whipping cream

Baileys Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy whipping cream, cold
  • 3/4 cup (86g) powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) Baileys Irish Cream
  • Oreo crumbs, optional


To make the crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper in the bottom and grease the sides.
  2. Combine the crust ingredients in a small bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the springform pan.
  3. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  4. Cover the outsides of the pan with aluminum foil so that water from the water bath cannot get in pan. Set prepared pan aside.

To make the filling:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and flour on low speed until well completely combined and smooth. Be sure to use low speed to reduce the amount of air added to the batter, which can cause cracks. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  2. Add the sour cream and mix on low speed until well combined.
  3. Add Baileys Irish Cream and vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture and mix on low speed until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing slowly to combine after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything is well combined.
  5. Pour the cheesecake batter into the crust.
  6. Place the prepared springform pan inside another larger pan. Fill the outside pan with enough warm water to go about halfway up the sides of the springform pan. The water should not go above the top edge of the aluminum foil on the springform pan.
  7. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes. The center should be set, but still jiggly.
  8. Turn off the oven and leave the door closed for 30 minutes. The cheesecake will continue to cook, but slowly begin to cool as well.
  9. Crack the door of the oven for 30 minutes to allow the cheesecake to continue to cool slowly. This process helps prevent cracking.
  10. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and water bath wrapping and refrigerate until firm, 5-6 hours or overnight.

To Finish off the Cheesecake:

  1. To make the chocolate ganache, put the chocolate chips in a heat proof bowl.
  2. Microwave the Baileys and heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour it over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour the ganache onto the cheesecake and spread into an even layer. Use an offset spatula to add a little texture/design, if you like. Place the cheesecake in the refrigerator while you make the whipped cream.
  4. To make the whipped cream, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and Baileys to a large mixer bowl and then whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  5. Pipe the whipped cream around the edge of the cheesecake, then sprinkle on a few Oreo crumbs, if desired.
  6. Store the cheesecake in the fridge until ready to serve. Cheesecake is best if eaten within 4-5 days.
4. Bread Pudding latest recipes



  • 6 slices stale bread french bread, buns, rolls, donuts, challah, toast or another type of bread
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter 1 tablespoon + 2 Tbsp
  • 4 Beaten Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional Vanilla Sauce

  • 3 tablespoon butter salted (but unsalted is ok too!)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and use 1 Tablespoon of butter to coat the inside of your 8 in. square baking dish.
  2. Break your bread (I made larger pieces, rather than crumbling it up) in to the buttered baking dish.
  3. Melt your remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and drizzle over bread pieces.
  4. In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients (don’t forget to beat your eggs first) until mixed well.
  5. Pour this mixture over the bread, making sure to evenly coat each piece.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top of the bread pudding springs back after lightly touching it with a fork.

Optional Vanilla Sauce

  1. Grab a small saucepan, and melt (on high) 3 Tablespoons of salted butter.Once melted, turned it down to medium heat and wait a bit to let the butter brown.
  2. Then, I add in a tablespoon of brown sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.Stir to combine and remove from heat. Let rest about 1-2 minutes, use the whisk to mix up the brown sugar and butter mixture and pour on top of the cooked bread pudding.The little chunks of brown sugar candied and let a bit of a crunch, which was the PERFECT addition to this soft texture that the bread pudding has.

Strawberry cake


  • 6 eggs
  • 175g golden caster sugar, plus extra to dust
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 50g butter, melted


  • 400g strawberries
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 300g mascarpone
  • 100g condensed milk


  • 200g white granulated sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  1. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Line a 27 × 37cm swiss roll tin with non-stick baking parchment. Whisk the eggs and sugar together until they are really light and fluffy – this can take about 5 minutes. Fold in the flour, then gradually fold in the butter and vanilla. Spoon the mix into the tin, level and bake for 12-15 minutes until pale but springy and cooked in the middle. Leave to cool.
  2. To make the filling, finely chop 300g of the largest strawberries and sprinkle over the caster sugar. Leave for 1 hour for the strawberries to give up their juice. Drain off and keep the juice, squashing the strawberries lightly against the sieve. Stir the mascarpone, condensed milk and strawberry pulp together. Line a 24 × 11 × 7cm loaf tin with baking parchment. Lay the loaf tin on the sponge and cut a strip just wide enough to fit in the tin, the length should fit as the sponge will have shrunk, but trim it if not. Put this in the base of the tin and brush the top with the strawberry juice. Add half the filling. Cut another strip of sponge a little wider than the last and add this, brush on the remaining juice and the remaining filling. Add the last piece of sponge and freeze the cake for an hour.
  3. To make the frosting, put the sugar and 4 tbsp water in a pan. Slowly increase the heat and boil until you have a thick, clear syrup. Meanwhile, beat the egg whites until stiff, then pour in the hot sugar syrup in a steady stream, beating until the mixture is fluffy and thick and the frosting is cool. Stir in the vanilla. Turn the cake carefully out onto a plate and remove the paper, cover it with the frosting and decorate with the remaining strawberries.

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or paste
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 150g blackberries
  • 300ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar


  • 200g blackberries
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • ½ lemon, juiced


  1. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and oil and line a deep 20cm springform cake tin. Whisk together the sugar and olive oil in a bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, with 1 tbsp of flour until completely incorporated. Whisk in the remaining flour and 1/2 tsp salt. Whisk in 125ml of the yogurt, the vanilla and lemon zest, then pour into the tin. Push the blackberries into the cake, then bake for 40-45 minutes or until a skewer poked into the middle comes out clean. Cool completely in the tin.
  2. To make the coulis, put 150g of the blackberries, the icing sugar, lemon juice and 2 tbsp of water into a small pan. Cook very gently until the berries have just burst and are saucy and syrupy, then stir through the remaining blackberries. Remove from the heat and cool.
  3. Put the remaining 100ml of yogurt, the double cream and the icing sugar into a bowl and whip to soft peaks. Take 2 tbsp of the blackberry coulis and fold this through the cream to create a ripple effect. Pile the cream onto the cake and spoon 1/2 of the remaining coulis on top. Cut into wedges and serve with the rest of the coulis.

Lemon Mousse Cake



  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • zest from 2 large lemons

For Lemon Curd:

  • 2/3 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 3 cups heavy cream, chilled
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • yellow food coloring; optional
  • 4 tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tbsp water


  • 3 oz package lemon jello
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup ice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350/177C. This recipe will make a three-layer cake using 8-inch cake pans and a two-layer cake using 9-inch cake pans. Line the pans with parchment paper and spray the sides with a baking spray.
  2. Prepare the lemon cake: In a large mixing bowl, beat together softened butter, sugar and lemon extract for a few minutes until fluffy. Add the eggs and beat again until creamy and smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. Next, pour in the milk but don’t mix it in yet (I recommend using warm milk). In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and salt. Sift the dry ingredients into the cake batter and whisk in the dry ingredients and milk by hand to avoid over-mixing the batter. Add the lemon zest last and fold it in gently.
  3. Divide the cake batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake layers to cool completely on a wire rack, then use a long, serrated knife to level off the tops. Place the cake layers into the freezer for faster cooling.
  4. While the cake layers are baking, prepare the lemon curd. Juice approximately 4 to 5 large lemons over a fine mesh strainer set up over a glass bowl or large measuring cup. Double strain the juice for smoothest lemon curd. Set juice aside. In a small stainless steel pot, combine the eggs, egg yolks and sugar. Whisk vigorously for 3 to 4 minutes, until the mixture is thick and more pale in color; it should ribbon off the whisk. Add the lemon juice and whisk to combine.
  5. Cook the lemon curd over medium-low heat, stirring constantly along the bottom of the pan with a rubber spatula. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the curd thickens and starts to bubble lightly. Remove from heat immediately. Add the unsalted butter and vanilla and whisk until the butter is completely melted, then cover the lemon curd. Allow the lemon filling to cool slightly, then place into the refrigerator. Place into the freezer to cool faster.
  6. Once the lemon curd and lemon cake layers are COMPLETELY cooled, prepare the mousse. Pour the chilled heavy cream into a large mixer bowl and add the sugar and lemon extract. Whisk on high speed for 3 to 4 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Reserve approximately 1 cup of the resulting whipped cream for garnishing the top. Add the chilled lemon curd to the whipped cream; reserve 1/2 cup of the lemon curd for spreading onto the cake layers. Whisk on medium speed for about 1 minute.
  7. Prepare the gelatin: place the unflavored gelatin and water into a small bowl and stir to combine. Microwave the gelatin for 30 to 40 seconds, stirring often, until the gelatin is completely dissolved. With the mixer running on medium speed, pour the HOT gelatin into the mousse. Do not wait for the gelatin to cool; it will form clumps! Mix the mousse for another minute on medium speed until the mousse is uniform and smooth. Watch my video recipe to see how it’s done.
  8. To assemble the cake: line the sides of an 8-inch or 9-inch (depending on the size of your cake layers) with an acetate cake collar (link in post). A double layer of foil will work in a pinch. Make sure to the acetate collar overlaps a few inches to prevent the jello from pouring out! Spread a few tablespoons of the reserved lemon curd onto each cake layer. Place the first cake layer into the springform pan, then add 3 cups of the mousse. Spread it evenly to the edges with a spoon, then add the second layer. Repeat this process again, leveling the top layer of mousse as much as possible. Place the cake into the refrigerator to chill for 1 hour.
  9. Prepare the lemon jello topping: in a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the flavored gelatin with 1/2 cup boiling water (this is half the recommended amount) and stir for a few minutes until the gelatin is completely dissolved. If needed, microwave the mixture for 30 seconds to dissolve completely. Add 1/2 cup ice cubes to cool the jello down. The mixture needs to be cool before pouring over the mousse. After the mousse cake has set for 1 hour, gently pour the jello over the top.
  10. Refrigerate the lemon cake for an additional 6 to 8 hours, or overnight. When ready to enjoy, remove the springform and use a cake spatula to transfer the cake onto a stand. Remove the plastic acetate when ready to serve. Add dollops of the reserved whipped cream on top; I used an open French star tip #4. To prevent the cake from drying out, keep it wrapped in the plastic cake collar while refrigerated.

Mango Cake


For the Easy Sponge Cake:

  • 6 large eggs, room temp
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

For the Mango Cake Filling/ Topping:

  • 1 lb fresh mangos, (2 medium) peeled and thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 lb fresh mangos, (2 medium) 1 1/2 cups puréed
  • 1 to 4 Tbsp sugar, if needed

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, 2 packages, softened
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, (16 Tbsp), softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


Prep: Pre-heat oven to 350˚F. Line the bottoms of two 9″ cake pans with parchment (do not grease).

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with whisk, beat 6 eggs on high speed 1 min until foamy. Gradually add 1 cup sugar then continue beating on high for 8 min. It will be whipped and forming thick ribbons when you pull up the whisk.*
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder.
  3. Sift flour into batter 1/3 at a time, folding between each addition, just until no flour streaks remain. Scrape from the bottom to catch any hidden flour pockets. Divide evenly between prepared cake pans and bake at 350˚F for 23-28 min (my oven takes 25 min). Tops should be golden brown and spring back when poked lightly.
  4. Run a knife or thin spatula around edges to loosen and invert onto wire rack. Peel back parchment paper right away and let cakes cool right-side-up to room temp before cutting them in half.

How to Make Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, combine 16 oz cream cheese, 1 cup butter, 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 2 tsp vanilla. Beat on low to combine then increase to high and beat 5-6 mins, scraping down the bowl as needed. Frosting should be whipped, soft and spreadable. Transfer 1 cup frosting to piping bag fitted with large open star tip and refrigerate until ready to use for the topping.

How to Cut Mango:

  1. A mango has one long, flat seed in the center of the fruit that goes from stem to nose. Slice off the sides around the seeds of all 4 whole mangos resulting in 8 halves. Set aside 4 halves – you will need them to decorate the top. Dice remaining 4 halves and scoop them out of their skin then transfer these to a blender and process until puréed. Taste the mango purée and add sugar to taste if needed.

How to Assemble the Mango Cake:

  1. Place the first sliced cake layer on a platter and spread with 1/2 cup mango purée. On the second cake layer, spread 1/2 cup frosting and place it frosting-side-down on the first layer so the cream and mango are hugging. Repeat with remaining layers then cover top and sides with remaining frosting. Pipe reserved frosting around the top border of your cake.
  2. Peel and thinly slice 4 reserved mango halves, cutting some strips long way and some wide. Layer mango slices in rings around the cake, starting with the longest pieces and overlapping each piece slightly until only a 1/2″ space is left in the center. Roll a long thin strip of mango into a coil and place it in the center. Cake can be served right away or refrigerated 2 hours for easier slicing. It keeps well covered and refrigerated up to 3 days.
