Cherry Mascarpone Roulade


It has been far too long since my last French Fridays with Dorie post.

We moved house.
I slipped a disc in my back (because of the move).
Spent way too long on a crazy cocktail of drugs to just get through each day!
And just when things were coming together…
Bam! School holidays!
There’s always something… right?

When I saw this week’s recipe I knew it was time to return to the group.
And I knew that I would replace the blueberries in Dorie’s recipe with a jar of Morello Cherries.
I contemplated strawberries.
However my daughter and I crave Black Forest Cake, loaded with juicy, plump, sour cherries… pretty much… all  the time!

School holidays are pretty crazy times around here.
I turned my back for a minute at the cinema and a movie poster became a prop!

So amidst all the chaos it was pure bliss carve out a little time to bake.
It felt indulgent.

Dorie’s Roulade recipe was simple and delicious.
We loved the cherry filling.
And I think strawberries would have been amazing.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the French Fridays with Dorie group thought!
(We are off to Melbourne for the weekend so I posted a day early!)

  2. That is so pretty, I’ve always wanted to try a roulade, but I’ve been daunted by the cake rolling…maybe I’ll try it soon.

  3. Congrats on the new move! Your roulade looks delicious. Perfect way to celebrate the new digs!

  4. Beautiful roulade! I thought about using cherries too but I was too lazy to do the pitting. Hope you’re feeling better & more relaxed after some baking time 🙂
