If you had a chance to check out our post a few weeks ago, S’mores Chocolate Cookies, then you know that we are pairing up with the lovely Manuela Kjeilen from Norway this month; and featuring recipes out of her first English cookbook: Love, Manuela. Equal parts gorgeous and mouthwatering, this huge baking book may give you the urge to don a string of pearls while whipping up something delicious in the kitchen. Manuela’s personality shines through with little antidotes sprinkled throughout and instructions that bring on a smile (rub sugar into the towel with your beautiful hands).
I decided to feature her Vanilla Cake Roll since people often view a cake roll as a daunting culinary feat. Cake rolls are actually quite easy to bake and always make an impressive presentation. This one is filled with fresh raspberries as well as a raspberry mascarpone frosting. Perfect for the warm weather berry season right now!
