Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • BERRIES:
  • 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Directions

  1. Line a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs on high speed for 3 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating until mixture becomes thick and lemon-colored. Beat in water and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; fold into egg mixture. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 5 minutes. Invert onto a kitchen towel dusted with confectioners’ sugar. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Meanwhile, for filling, combine flour and milk in a small saucepan until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer (mixture will be very thick). Transfer to a bowl; press waxed paper onto surface of mixture. Cool completely.
  5. In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and salt. Gradually beat in milk mixture; beat for 5 minutes or until filling is light and fluffy.
  6. Unroll cake; spread filling over cake to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up again. Place seam side down on a serving platter. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Combine strawberries and sugar; refrigerate cake and berries for 1 hour before serving.
