Pink Velvet Roulade / Cake Roll - Guest Post For Divya Pramil

Today's post is a special guest post for Divya of You Too Can Cook -Indian Food. She is such a lovely and friendly person and am so blessed to have found her. I really amazed on her authentic Indian Foods, both Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian especially Her Chicken Preparations are so mouth watering and it looks like my Mom's Recipes - the color, texture and oil float on top everything looks exactly like my mom's Chicken Curry, Meen Kuzhambu.
Her recipes, pictures and the well organised blog doesn't look like the one from New Blogger. She is multi talented, good in writing, cooking, photography, presentation everything looks like a Now Pro. I love her dedication towards blogging. She is also an innovative queen, wonder h she able to come up with such lovely ideas?! one such example - Her Strawberry Rasgulla and equally she is very creative in presenting the recipes, even simple recipe like Maida Paniyaram can be made into Heart Shaped Fritters for Valentine Special. Heart Paniyaram looked attractive and her effort was appreciated by many of us.

When Divya asked requested me to do a guest post i was really happy and i asked her do u have any recipe in particular? She said that u can share anything but don't strain urself, even a simple juice or milkshake is fine for me. All i need is a post from U in my space, so sweet right? But i wanted to share some sweet recipe for the sweetest person and i know that My sweet Sis love Pink and her favorite too. So i decided to share something related to Pretty Pink. First i planned to make an Indian dessert with Beets for pink color then searched for Pink colored desserts and i found this Pink Velvet Roulade. The color and the cake roll impressed me and i decided to try it for her Guest Post. I made it and it turned out good except the color as i don't have rose food color so used red color, as the batter was yellow in nature the red combination yielded an unique color in between red n pink which is again an unexpected one. But still the color was more near to pink so i consoled myself. Somehow i tried to present it well but due to time pressure n lighting problem(it almost 4 pm) am unable to do it well but happy it was loved by the person for whom i made, Divya.

Recipe from Sprinkle Bakes
  1. All Purpose Flour    1 cup
  2. Baking Powder      1 tsp
  3. Salt     1 tsp
  4. Egg     4 no.s
  5. Granulated Sugar     3/4 cup
  6. Oil       1 tbsp
  7. Buttermilk    2 tbsp
  8. Vinegar        1 tsp
  9. Vanilla Extract    1 tsp
  10. Rose Gel Food Color    1 drop
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree. Grease a 9 X13 jelly-roll pan with white vegetable shortening or oil and line with parchment n grease parchment paper.
  • In a bowl Sift flour, baking powder and salt and combine everything and keep aside.
  • In another bowl, beat eggs in medium speed for 3 minutes until light and yellow color.
  • To the whipped eggs, add sugar and oil beat lightly and then add buttermilk, vinegar, vanilla and food color and then add the prepared flour mixture slowly and whip until it combined well.

  • Then pour the batter to the grease n lined pan, tilt pan to distribute evenly and bake for 12-15 minutes. Check after 12 minutes. Cake is done when it springs back when pressed with fingers.
  • Mean while prepare the towel for rolling, sprinkle a cotton towel( i used my cotton dhupatta) with powdered sugar and rub sugar into the towel with your hands.
  • As soon as the cake done, turn it out onto the towel. Peel off parchment and immediately roll cake into the cotton towel, beginning at the narrow end. Roll tightly and as evenly as possible. Place rolled cake on a wire rack seam-side down and let cool completely.
For Filling I used Vanilla Butter cream Frosting.
As my kids were not caught with cold n cough i don't want to load with full cream, so spread a very little amount but over all the cake roll tasted Delicious!!
