TBB: Prune (Mango) Preserves and Caramel (Dulce De Leche) Cream Cake Roll (p105)

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 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 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! 

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.

I love the look of this … and the filling sound delicious!! Arctic rolls are so fun but could do with a bit of a makeover… waiting to see what you will do. :) ----Jeniffer

The cake roll looks bakery perfect, Faithy. I don't even need the filling..the cake alone is magnificent.

You got a perfect roll design! That combination sounds delicious. How much oil and water did you add? I like a thicker cake, too.
