This raspberry roulade even easier than making the full cake – and the raspberry frosting; SCRUMPTIOUS!! I made this again today and it turned out great!

It was so nice to have my relatives from Washington state visit this past weekend. My cousin Alla stopped by my home and we cooked together for a couple of hours.

She taught me how to make the most amazing chicken fettuccine Alfredo  and this wonderful Biskvit Raspberry Roulade. I couldn’t believe how easy it was.

I admit I was always intimidated by Russian roulades; they just seemed complicated. Maybe some of them are. This one isn’t! It uses the biskvit cake recipe that I posted earlier.

This recipe makes 2 large roulades. Alla, thank you so much for sharing your cooking genius with me. It was great to catch up with you. Hope to see you again soon!

Biskvit Raspberry Roulade Cake Ingredients:

1 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour *measured correctly
1/2 tsp baking powder
10 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

What you will need:

Parchment paper (wax paper works, but its harder to peel off)
2 rimmed cookie sheets (either 11×15 or 11×17 will work, but the cake will be a bit thinner with llx17).

Frosting Ingredients:

8 oz (1 cup) cream cheese
8 oz (1 cup) sugar
8 oz (1 cup) sour cream
1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries (If using frozen; thaw in fridge then drain well on paper towels)
8 oz tub Cool Whip, thawed

How to Make the Sponge Cake Beskvit:

1. Line 2 large, rimmed cookie sheets with parchment paper and pre-heat the Oven to 350°F.

2. Separate egg whites from yolks, than in a medium bowl, whisk together yolks, sugar and vanilla until well blended.

3. Sift together flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder and mix into the yolk mixture until well blended.

4. In a large bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until they foam and are about 3 times in volume (about 2 to 3 minutes). Don’t beat too long or you will begin to lose volume.

5. Use a spatula to gently fold the yolk mixture into the egg whites until well combined. Don’t mix too much  or you will lose volume. The batter should have a fluffy texture.

6. Divide the batter evenly among the two, lined cookie sheets and bake 12-15 minutes until the tops are golden and toothpick comes out clean.

7. As soon as the cake is done, turn the cake out onto a clean surface and quickly peel off the parchment paper. This is much easier to do while the cake is still very warm.

8. Immediately turn the cakes right side up and place the parchment paper on top of each of them, than quickly roll the cakes into a log.  Leave the cakes rolled up and let them cool to room temperature.

9. Once cakes are cooled, unroll them gently, discard the parchment paper, and spread the top evenly with frosting (keep reading for instructions on making frosting).

10. Roll the frosted cakes up again into a log. Start rolling from the same side you originally rolled it from. Set them on a platter and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, dust with powdered sugar.

How to make Raspberry Frosting:

1. In a large bowl of a stand mixer, on high speed, beat the cream cheese and sugar together for about 1 minute (just until combined).

2. Reduce speed to medium/high and add sour cream. Mix until well combined (1-2 minutes). Scrape down the bowl as necessary.

3. Add raspberries and beat on high speed, just until mixed through (about 1 minute). The frosting will be pink.

4. Using a spatula, mix the cool whip in by hand until well combined, than spread onto the cakes or refrigerate until ready to use.

    I made the Biskvit Raspberry Roulade and stored in the refrigerator until next day. I noticed a dark discoloring between the cream filling and the cake. Although the dessert was delicious, I was wondering what caused the discoloring??? Reply

    • Natasha
      November 23, 2018

      Hi Terry, I don’t recall any discoloring – could you have possibly used a syrup or any other kind of berry that may have caused it? Reply

        November 24, 2018

        Followed recipe and used frozen raspberries thawed on paper towel. I also noticed the dark discoloring on top on the cake. I had roll in refrigerator till serving. Not sure what caused the dark spotting. I did not use any syrup. I wanted to make this for Christmas gift, but now afraid of this happening again 🙁 Reply

    • Yelena Lepekhin

      That’s totally normal because the raspberries are juicy and rich in color and do that all the time….. they soaked/ moistened the roll that way! Reply

    I love this roulette recipe! It’s just mouth melting!!!! I made it twice already in the past 3 weeks! My husband and family love it!!! The only issue that I have making it is that when I roll it up the cream comes out and it ends up being not fully filled😏 does anyone have any advice on that or helpful tips? Reply

    • Natasha

      April 20, 2018

      Hi Yelena, I’m so glad you all love it! Here are some times that might help with the frosting: make sure you are using a thick sour cream such as Daisy brand and not the thinner Canadian or Russian style sour cream. Also, using more raspberries than what is called for might make the sauce a little thinner as the raspberries break up and release juice in the mixer. You might try refrigerating the cream for 30 minutes prior to adding it if it seems to soft. Reply

    What’s the difference between this cake roll and all your other new rolls that are made easier all together like the sponge cake?
    Is there a reason why one of the roll reciepes is baked at 410 and quicker? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      December 22, 2017

      Hi Sveta, I’ve been making them with the newer method (beat egg whites and yolks all together with sugar) since it is easier. This recipe still works but it is a little more effort (although not much, more like an extra bowl to wash ;)). I believe there is only 1 cake roll that is baked at 410 – the one that uses cake flour and has a finer crumb. My most recent blackberry cake roll might be the best example of using this sponge cake base with the method of beating the yolks and whites together. It is also baked at 350˚F and there is a handy video tutorial on it. Reply

  • JQ
    June 8, 2017

    I was looking at your Blackberry Lemon Cake roll recipe (that one is definitely on my to-make list) and I am wondering if I could make this Biskvit Raspberry Roulade (Roulette) Cake using the same method, that is beating the eggs without separating them? This recipe continues to be a family favorite!! I have successfully frozen it with the frosting in it for 3 months and then defrosted it in the fridge and it was still awesome 🙂 Thank you so much! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      June 9, 2017

      Hi JQ, yes absolutely! I have been doing the non-separating method for some time. It is easier and less likely to end up with clumps of flour. I’m so glad you like it! It is also freezer friendly 🙂 Reply

    Hi Natasha is there another substitute for cool whip? Or if I don’t put it in at all will it be still pretty good you think? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      March 11, 2017

      Hi Alla, I think the frosting will be too loose without it and the next best thing would be to replace the cool whip with freshly whipped heavy whipping cream – beat with a little powdered sugar until fluffy and spreadable. Reply

  • Alina Borishkevich
    December 21, 2016

    I want to make this for Christmas dinner but I can only bake on Christmas Eve. What if I baked it on Saturday, would it still be good the next day and how would I store it? And if I go to unroll at the next day you think it should still unroll easily Reply

    • Natasha

      Hi Alina, if you are storing the cake overnight, I would keep it rolled up and store at room temperature and assemble it the following day. You could even assemble and completely make the roll a day in advance then refrigerate and dust with powdered sugar just before serving. Reply

    This roulade is so delicious, thank you for the recipe! I have some ‘strawberry only’ people in my family and I am wondering how much strawberries I would use in this recipe? Would you use the same amount as with the raspberries? I usually convert most recipes to weight, which I find works best for me (for consistency). I am glad to see some weight amounts in your recipes.
    Thank you 🙂

    I will probably butter the parchment paper next time. The cake was stuck to it even though I tried removing it as soon as it was out of the oven:( Ended up with the cake on pieces and starting over. Reply

      Hi Kristina, you might bake a little longer (not all ovens are created equal), also I would suggest watching this video on making the sponge cake to see if it helps for next time. Also, just to be sure, did you use parchment paper or wax paper? Reply

  • Maria
    May 19, 2016

    It was going well (even made my own cool whip because I’m in the UK), until I started making the icing. Maybe your definition of cream cheese is different to ours but mine would not whip and stayed liquid. I tried twice, but with no avail. Sour cream did not aid the process and only made it runnier. In the end I buckled and tried to make it with whipping cream, which also ended up too runny. So I have two sheets of really tasty dough currently resting in a giant bowl of failed raspberry icing.

    My question is – how DID you get it to be so nice and thick? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      May 19, 2016

      I think it could be either the sour cream or the cream cheese. Various parts of the world have looser cream cheese and thinner sour creams. I’m not familiar with how the UK compares with US since I haven’t tried yours but for example, Canada has a very runny sour cream – more like a thin yogurt which would affect the overall frosting. You might try folding in more cool whip at this point. Reply

  • Alla
    February 13, 2016

    Making this cake right now, waiting for the biskvit to cool off. Wanted to ask for the people that already made this before, was the cake/rulet pretty moist with just the cream itself or should I moisten the rulet with some sugar water before frosting it? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      February 13, 2016

      I thought it was pretty moist from the cream – the cream isn’t too stiff so the cake absorbs just enough of it to be great without having to add extra syrup, but it wouldn’t hurt to brush with a little syrup, just don’t go overboard 🙂 Reply

  • Mila

    Natasha, if you wanted to make this cake a bit moister what alcohol/syrup would you recommend? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      December 1, 2015

      For this one, I’d probably just use a sugar/lemon juice/water syrup so that the raspberries in the cream would still really pop 🙂 Reply

  • Susan
    August 23, 2015

    Can this be made ahead and frozen? Reply

    • Natasha

      August 23, 2015

      The biskvit cake roll portion can be made ahead but I’ve never frozen it with cream inside. The cake layer can be rolled with parchment paper and then covered with plastic wrap before freezing it. Reply

    • Susan
      November 5, 2015

      Hi Natasha, OMG, could have eaten the frosting all by it’s self. So glad there was some leftover. I freezed 1/3 of a roll, couldn’t see wasting it if it didn’t work. I let it defrost in the refrigerator overnight and it came out perfect, just like I made it that day. This will make my holiday baking a little easier. Kept in the freezer for about 2 months. Couldn’t wait any longer. 🙂 Reply

      Angelika, did you use fresh or frozen strawberries? If using frozen; thaw in fridge then drain well on paper towels. Also, was the sour cream, thick American kind, or the liquidy Canadian type? Either one of these things could cause liquidy frosting. it should thicken up in the fridge. Reply

    I made this yesterday morning for the Christmas dinner. It was a big hit! I absolutely love the frosting! The only thing I did differently is I didn’t put all the frosting inside the cakes, I thought there was too much of it, but instead covered the cake rolls with the remaining frosting and with some remaining raspberries on top (I wasn’t fast enough rolling the cakes and one turned out pretty cracked so I wanted to cover it up). They turned out beautiful. Thanks for fantastic recipes, I always go to your blog if I want to find something to bake that everyone will really enjoy! Reply

    Made this tonight. I was waiting for the cakes’ tops to get golden but they never did and burned on the bottom after baking for 10 minutes; I had to scrape the burnt layers off with a knife to try to save them. I have gas ovens; I don’t know if that’s what caused it. Hubby still loved the final product. I really liked the raspberry filling. Next time I’ll take them out sooner or bake them at a lower temp. Reply

The frosting part i thought was a little runny…if I make this dessert again, i will definitely use the biskvit part of the recipe but would need to come up with a different filling. Thanks for the simple, and step-by-step instructions! Reply

      Fresh raspberries or chopped strawberries aren’t as juicy so the frosting will be firmer. Hope this helps a little. Reply

    This raspberry roll was delicious! Simple to make if one has the basics of baking. I make a similar recipe I use 9 eggs, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of flour (sifted). Beat eggs whites with sugar till glossy peaks form (carefull not to overbeat). Gentley fold in the egg yolks, and then even more gentley fold the sifted flour. Sometimes I add a little vanilla. Bake at 350 till golden ….. I like to used cooked condensed milk with melted chocolate. I love love your website, thanks for all the awesome ideas and the hardwork that you put into this site. 🙂 May God bless you Natasha and your cute little family! Reply

    I did something wrong when I was rolling the korzh cuz it cracked all over so instead of throwing it out and making a new one, my sister and I made a new recipe with it. I broke the korzh into little squares, mixed with your rasberry cream (so delicious!) put Jello cut in squares on top, more cream and topped it with fresh raspberries and strawberries. It turned out SO delicious that people were asking me for the recipe.lol It was like a fruitcake salad. Thanks for all your recipes-they are amazing and so delicious. God bless! Reply

      Oh sounds like you’ve created a nice recipe! I’ll have to try it. It won’t crack as much if you roll it as soon as it comes out of the oven. You have to move quickly for best results, but your creation sounds so good!! Reply

    Hi Natasha. so i made this Roulette with my hubby over the weekend and when we we tried it the dough part was rubbery (not so tasty), the frosting did turn out good. Do you know what happened. I followed ur recipe exactly. Reply

    • Natasha

      June 3, 2012

      Hmmm. I haven’t had the experience yet. Did your cake look like the one in the pictures or was the cake part thinner? Here are some possible solutions; a common problem is either beating the egg whites too long or not long enough. It’s hard to say what to recommend without seeing your cake, but it probably needs a little more beating based on your description. Next time I make these roulades, I will post more detailed pictures of what the batter should look like. Also, bake them together. If you let it sit on the counter too long, it will start losing volume. It’s meant to be mixed and baked pretty much right away. This cake recipe does need more photos; we are getting better about that. Anyway, sorry the cake part didn’t work out. Next time I make it, I’ll get better pictures posted for this recipe. Reply

    oh!!! i have tried this once and miserably failed. the problem was my dough got very skinny and flat and the ends burned. we ate the middle part and dipped it in the filling. oh and it got stuck to the parchment paper or wax paper. i can;t remember which one i used. im afraid to try this but my mom made it a long time ago and it was deliiiiishssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh Reply

    • Natasha

      April 26, 2012

      If you use wax paper, you need to remove it right away as soon as you take it out of the oven. If you wait, it will stick. Also, they usually reason it gets too skinny is because the egg whites aren’t whipped enough (or overwhipped and dry), so when you blend it, it’s not a fluffy enough dough. Sorry it didn’t work out for you. I have another recipe for roulade that is on my to-do list. Maybe that one will be a little easier. Reply

    Hi Natasha,
    I was so nervous to try to bake this dessert I do not u freally consider myself as a baker more of a cook. However, it did turn out fantastic and a crowd pleaser everyone loved it. I also have tried one of your salads the broccoli and raisin one it was soooo delicious and every time I make it it is all gone so now i make it in double portions. Thanks for all your posts they all look so yummy to make, hopefully in the near future I can try them all. Reply

    Hello. I made these over the weekend for our family reunion and they came out just wonderful. In regards to cream…I made the cream while the biskvit was baking, then when the biskvit was out cooling my cream was cooling in the fridge too, otherwise I could see it being runny esp. if you leave it out on the counter. (also I heard that if you use powdered sugar instead of the granulated sugar it will hold the cream better because it has corn starch in it.) Reply

    Hi, Natasha
    I made this last night. It came out tasting delicious. My only problem was that my frosting came out too soft. It tastes great, but my cake looks a little messy and the frosting drips out. The only thing I did different from your recipe was that I made my own cool whip (by whipping real whipping cream and adding sugar). Do you think that could be the reason? I’d appreciate any suggestions you can give me.
    Thank you. I am a big fan of your blog. Reply

    • Natasha
      July 25, 2011

      Thank you! Making your own whipping cream won’t be as firm as using cool whip. Try the recipe I have posted for my cherry layer cake and see the tips I posted for making your own whip cream. Reply

    Natasha your ruletiki is so beautiful!!! I tried to make these before, but always had problems with biskwit. Even with only 3 eggs I was getting a huge sponge. I guess it was because I beat whites too long. They actually don’t lose volume (at least in my case). Need to try your recipe.
    As for frosting… you know I’m not a fan of Cool Whip …I ‘ll probably try mascarpone and whip cream (last time I got it right for tiramisu). Actually, I just got an idea: if you add some sweetened coffee on sponge and cut it into a cake it will become aka tiramisu J. these ruletiki would be great with chocolate cream (thinking Nutella, but not sure about ingredients in it(palm oil…)). My hubby does not consider any desert without chocolate or coffee. Reply

      Just like with meringue, I found that if I beat the whites too long, they get too stiff and then it didn’t blend into the dough very well and the final didn’t have the volume it needed. Reply

    i tried this recipe on the weekend and have to say the roulade was DELICIOUS..took it to a party and everybody loved it.. I couldnt find raspberries that day so i just did it with strawberries and it was very yummy.. I am imagining that with raspberries would be even better, so will do next time. Anyway, i just wanted to comment and say Thank You for posting this easy recipe. Reply

        I’ve also tried doing the cream and after i frost the cake sprinkle whole blueberries.Chopped strawberries. Chopped peaches you can almost add fruit in it or nuts. Or plain cream on cake…. Use your imagination cant go wrong or even do two fruits or fruit and some chopped nuts

        Looks very good, a lot of times i just add a layer of any fruit jelly or jam and than the frosting. Makes the roulade very moist and ready to eat with in a very short time. Reply
