Chocolate Cherry Roll with Rum Cream ~ A Video Recipe

This chocolate cherry roll is spiked!! The base is a Russian chocolate sponge cake called biskvit. Use rum in  lieu of vanilla extract for a cream that smells and tastes amazing. I think you’ll agree! Check out the video for step-by-step instructions and a taste test that my husband insisted I include :-O.

There is a print-friendly version at the bottom of this post. Also, be sure to subscribe to my new youtube channel. One last thing and then I’ll stop rambling; this cake is GOOD!

Watch How To Make Chocolate Cherry Cake Roll:

Ingredients for the Chocolate Cherry Roll:

4 eggs (cold or room temp)
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour *measured correctly
3 Tbsp Unsweetened cocoa powder

Ingredients for the Frosting:

1.5 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar, plus more to sprinkle the finished cake
2 tsp Rum (I used Meyers Dark rum 40% alcohol)
1 cup Canned cherries in light syrup OR whatever fresh or canned fruit you like.

How to Make the Chocolate Cherry Roll and Rum Cream:

Preheat the Oven to 350˚F.
1. Line an  rimmed half baking pan (interior dimensions 16.5 x 11.38) with parchment paper, then butter and flour the top of the parchment paper.

2. In the bowl of your electric mixer, whisk together 4 eggs with 2/3 cup sugar for 12 minutes on high speed until the mixture is thick. Sift in 1/2 cup flour and 3 Tbsp cocoa powder and fold it in gently, scraping from the bottom of the bowl to make sure you do not have any lumps left in the batter. Continue folding/scraping gently for about 1-2 minutes until the batter is smooth and lump-free. It’s best to be humming a little tune at this point;… not really, but it makes everything so much more fun! Transfer to your prepped baking pan and Bake at 350˚F for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

3. You must start rolling the cake when it just comes out of the oven. Transfer your cake to your work surface and place a sheet of parchment paper or a tea towel over the cake, then roll the cake over it, pulling it away from the parchment paper as you roll. Use a thin edged spatula if the cake sticks to the parchment. Let cool to room temp.

The Frosting & Assembly:

1. Clean and completely dry the mixing bowl. Whisk together 1.5 cups heavy whipping cream with 1/3 cup powdered sugar on high speed (about 2 minutes) until stiff peaks form, then beat in 2 tsp Rum until well combined. Don’t over-beat or it will turn buttery. Lick the whisk clean (very important!) and then Refrigerate frosting until ready to use.

2. Once the cake is cooled to room temp, unroll it and spread the top evenly with frosting. Scatter about 1 cup of drained cherries over the top. Roll the cake in the same direction that you rolled it initially. Transfer to your serving platter and sprinkle it generously with powdered sugar. You can cut off the ends for a prettier presentation.

    Hi Natasha, the cake is indeed a success! Absolutely love it! 🙂

    However, I found the cake a little bit too sweet for diabetics. I was thinking how much should I reduce for the sugar to make it spongy and if it’s possible not to add sugar in?

    Cheers! Reply

      Hi Joanne, I haven’t tested it with less – you might possibly be able to make it work with half the amount but the cake does need sugar to form properly. Sorry I can’t be more helpful! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 8, 2014

      I’ve seen them at Fred Meyer. You can also purchase frozen pitted cherries and thaw them. You might find them in the pie filling section of your grocery store, just make sure it’s not “cherry pie filling” since that one usually has a thick sauce and not much actual cherries, that’s why going with cherries in a light syrup is best. I hope that helps 🙂 Reply

    Have you tried these with fresh raspberries? Wonder if that taste better than cherries.
    Also I dont have a 13 x 18 pan. My biggest one is 11×17 and 10×15. Do you think your recipe will still work good on the 11×17? No need of omitting anything right? Just will be a thicker cake? I also have 40% golden bicardi Rum, think it will taste good with that? 2 teaspoons right? Im drooling just thinking of it! Reply

    Can I use 35% Whipping cream instead of heavy whipping cream? Is there a big difference? And can I freeze the roll? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      January 27, 2014

      Heavy whipping cream has 38% and a higher fat content will yield a stiffer frosting so I’d recommend getting the heavy whipping cream for a sturdier frosting, but I still think it would whip up if you froze your mixing bowl and whisk attachment for best results. I haven’t tried freezing the roll to be honest so I don’t know if it is freezer friendly. Reply

    I made the roll today and followed all the directions but my roll cracked after I put the cream on and rolled it. It cracked so bad the cream came out of the huge cracks on top that no amount of powdered sugar could cover it. It did not crack when I took it out of the oven and rolled it but as I was putting it together. I checked all the instructions and took advice from the commenters but still failed. So bummed:( Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      October 31, 2013

      Oh bummer 🙁 how long did it sit before you unrolled it? I’m wondering if maybe it became too dry? Mine had very minor little cracks which are normal but nothing major. Reply

      • Adelina
        November 1, 2013

        Ok, so I had to experiment with 3 different rolls to figure out what the problem was. I made one by your recipe and it cracked terribly, then I made one without adding the cocoa and was surprised that it was perfect but I wanted a chocolate one, so I made a third one and only added 1/2 the cocoa thats in your recipe and voala! it was PERFECT!!!! I’m guessing the cocoa dries it out more and makes it crack. The one with less cocoa actually is more pliable and delicate but not rubbery or dry. I’m just going to add less cocoa to the batter next time and add the rest of the cocoa to the cream to have the same chocolaty flavor. Reply

    It craked when I was rolling it for the first time. I rolled it right away once I took it out of the oven. Maybe I should of baked it for longer? Haven’t done the second run yet, but I won’t give up. I made so many rolls before and never had that problem. Reply

    Natasha I am being honest with you. I have cooked so much recipes from your blog and always was successful. Don’t know what went wrong this time, but while I was rolling the cake it broke into 3 pieces. I am really upset. I read all the comments and will try to do it as someone suggested rolling it with the parchment paper. I promised my sister in law that I will bring this roll for her birthday party today. Do you have an idea why it broke into 3 pieces? It wasn’t sticking to parchment at all. I will give it one more try and before I have to run to the store and get some more groceries for the ingredients. Reply

      You have to roll it pretty quickly when it comes out of the oven or it will crack. Are you having problems with it cracking with the first roll up or with the un-roll once it cools to room temp? Reply

    Oh, and another thing, I was out of parchment paper one time, and only had wax paper, and I didnt feel like making trip to store for one thing, so I used wax paper and it worked great. But heres how: As soon as you take it out of oven, turn it over and peel wax paper off, then turn it back over and roll it in clean kitchen towel, and let it cool down. Saves you some parchment paper 🙂 Reply

    I make mine very similar. For cream, I use no rum, just 1.5 cups heavy whip cream and about 4 tablespoons powdered sugar. And I also use less sugar for dough, only half cup. Comes out very nice. My hubby doesn’t like it to sweet. Reply

    Natasha, I made this last night and I could not taste the rum AT ALL. I doubled the amount of rum to 4 tsp, but still couldn’t taste it. I was afraid to add more so the cream wouldn’t become runny, but I’m just wondering if the rum I bought was too diluted? I don’t know much about alcohol so I’m not sure what types of rum are out there. What percentage alcohol is your rum? I believe mine was 21%. Reply

      I was surprised reading your comment until I checked my rum. I used Meyers Rum 40%! It’s a dark rum. I’ll add that to the recipe. You should be able to taste it really well with 2 tsp. Thanks for letting me know! Reply

    I enjoyed your video! It would be great to see a video of the raspberry cake with the cool whip. That one looks very delicious as well. Reply

    Can I skip the rum? Or use something else in its place? Reply

  • Nice video!
    you can try not removing the prachment paper when you roll it into a roll (to retain shape), this might prevent the cracks. Just remove the parchment after the cake has cooled, rolled up. Reply

        March 8, 2013

        I was going to say the same thing, roll with the parchment as is and not add extra parchment paper on top to roll, then when you unroll, after it cools off, peel the parchement as you go. Works great and you save parchment Reply

    So in the video, you don’t separate your eggs, but in the ingredients, it states to separate.. A little confused? Reply
