Guava Cake Roll - Rocambole de Goiaba

This pretty cake roll is surprisingly easy to prepare and it makes a lovely dessert for any occasion. Guava paste (goiabada) provides the delicious, slightly exotic fruit flavor that makes this cake so outstanding. 

  • For the cake:
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cream of coconut (or substitute butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • For the filling:
  • 1/3 cup guava paste
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 2-3 cups powdered (confectioners) sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons cream
  • Pinch of salt
  • Prep Time: 120 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 130 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 8
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F).  Grease the bottom and sides of a 10 inch x 15 inch baking sheet with butter, then line the pan with greased parchment paper.  Sprinkle lightly with flour and shake off excess.

In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the eggs until pale yellow and thickened.  Add the sugar gradually and beat well, then add the vanilla and salt.  Whisk the flour and baking powder together and add to the batter, stirring just enough to mix.

Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake for 10 minutes, or until cake is spongy and springs back to the touch.  Remove the cake from the oven, and sprinkle the top of the cake generously with confectioners (powdered) sugar.  Loosen edges of cake from the pan, and turn cake out of the pan (sugared side down) onto a clean dishtowel.  Starting with a short end, tightly roll up the cake and the towel together and set aside to cool.

Prepare filling:  Place the guava paste, strawberry preserves, and lime juice in a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until guava paste and strawberry preserves are melted. Strain mixture into a heatproof bowl and let cool to room temperature.  

Place the softened butter in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  Beat butter until light and creamy.  Add 1 cup confectioners sugar and beat well.  Add cooled guava paste mixture and the second cup of confectioners sugar, plus a pinch of salt, and beat well. Add the cream and enough additional confectioners sugar until the mixture has a soft frosting-like texture.
 Beat well.

Gently unroll the cooled cake. Spread the filling over the cake, then carefully re-roll the cake. Wrap the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours before serving.  When ready to serve, remove plastic wrap and lace the cake roll seam-side down on a serving platter, and dust generously with confectioners sugar.   Cut the cake crosswise into spiral slices to serve.
