Vegan cake roll with strawberry jam

You need to try this quick and easy recipe for juicy cake roll filled with jam, especially if you love fruits!

A soft and tender cake roll is a great dessert or even breakfast because it contains very small amount of coconut sugar and oil, and is made from healthy spelt flour. It is really tasty and also very easy to prepare. It also looks stunning, because strawberry jam creates a wonderful contrast of colors.



The preparation of the cake is quite simple and you only need 7 ingredients to make it:

  • spelt flour – is a healthier substitute for classic white flour, as it is rich in protein, vitamins B, E, magnesium and zinc and is also easy to digest,
  • baking powder
  • coconut sugar – you can also replace it with brown cane sugar if you like,
  • soy yoghurt – creates a soft and juicy dough that is easy to roll. We use soy yogurt with no added sugar, you can also use sweetened, but in this case the cake roll will be sweeter. Choose the yogurt that suits your taste best,
  • almond milk – you can also use some other plant based milk, for example rice, oat …,
  • agave syrup and
  • coconut oil.


We used strawberry jam for the filling, but you can also use other types of jams: apricot, plum, cherry … If you are not the biggest fan of fruit flavours, you can still enjoy this cake, just use vegan chocolate or hazelnut spread instead of jam.

Powdered sugar

You can sprinkle some powdered sugar on top of cake roll for the perfect look. We used erythritol powder, which is very similar to sugar, but healthier and has zero calories.


Preparing cake roll may seem difficult at first, but this is not the case  if you follow the next steps:

  1. Firstly, mix all of the ingredients together to get a smooth batter, pour it onto a baking pan lined with baking paper and spread all over the baking pan into a thin layer.
  2. Bake for 10 minutes at 180 ° C.
  3. As soon as you take it out of the oven, place the dough on a wet kitchen cloth and roll it together with the cloth and place the edges of the cloth under the roll so that it is completely wrapped.
    Note: Boil kitchen cloth so that the cake won’t taste like detergent.
  4. Wait for the roll to cool down. Then roll it out, spread strawberry jam on top and roll it. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.
  5. Store the cake roll in a sealed container in the refrigerator, where it can last up to 5 days.
