  • 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.

  • Spread onto the cooled cake leaving a one inch border around the edges.
  • In a small bowl combine the strawberries, one tablespoon of sugar and lemon zest.
  • Scatter strawberries over the top of the whipped cream.
  • Starting at the short end, roll up the cake, letting the parchment fall away as you roll.
  • Place the cake seam side down.
  • Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
