This is only half the roll...
Plums yes, Prunes no. I don't hate it in general, I can still eat them but given a choice, I would pick other dried fruits, like apricot or mango. Thus, I substituted the prunes with dried mango instead. The flavor is not so mango-rish, but more citrus-y.. maybe I added too much lemon juice! lol!
I didn't follow the instructions in the book exactly for the sponge cake. I saw on the photo that it's a very thin cake roll and I like my cake roll (we call it "Swiss Roll" here..) to be a bit thicker..and fluffier. So I added some oil and water making it more chiffon like... my pan is slightly smaller I think..so naturally it will come up a bit taller, I figured.
Baked for 15mins and cool it upside down.
After cool, spread Mango preserves
I have a can of Dulce De Leche in fridge, so lazy me, just used this instead of making caramel.
No photos of the whipped cream because somehow after I whipped the cream, it melted really quickly..so it was quite a mess trying to roll the cake with soft cream. I ended up putting the whole cake roll in the freezer wrapped in cling wrap. I rolled the cake length way..and maybe added the difficulty..
Below is the frozen cake. Quite good in fact..still soft in freezer and the cream taste like ice-cream...lol!
Of course I added more vanilla ice cream on it.. and drizzle plain ganache which I had in fridge.
My husband likes it a lot. The citrusy tangy mango preserves blends very well with the cream and ice-cream. Perhaps next time if I make it again, I should just wrap it with ice-cream instead of whipped cream - just like the classic Artic Roll cake which I love.
