We love this zesty lemon and summer fruit roulade, created by last year's Great British Bake Off finalist, Kimberley Wilson.

Ideal for summer parties and barbecues, this sweet treat is the perfect dessert to serve to guests. Even better, it takes just 20 minutes to prepare, leaving you more time to enjoy the sun!

Zesty lemon and summer fruits roulade

© Dr. Oetker


  • 3 large eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 sachet of Dr. Oetker Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon of Dr. Oetker Sicilian Lemon Natural Extract
  • For the filling:
  • 300g fat free Greek yogurt
  • 100g lemon curd
  • 120g strawberries, chopped
  • 70g blueberries
  • To decorate:
  • Dr. Oetker Wafer Butterflies
  • Icing Sugar


1 Heat oven to 200C. Grease and line a swiss roll tin with baking paper (37cm x 26cm).

2 Whisk the eggs and sugar at high speed until pale and fluffy (about 4-6 minutes).

3 Sift in the flour, baking powder and lemon extract and fold in until fully incorporated. Pour into the prepared tin and gently smooth the surface with a spatula.

4 Pour the mixture into a swiss roll tin (37cm x 26cm x 1cm) and bake in the centre of the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. While it’s baking, prepare a sheet of baking paper, (a few inches larger than the baking sponge) by sprinkling it with 1 tablespoon of caster sugar.

5 Tip the cooked cake out onto the prepared paper and peel away the paper it was baked on. Along one long side, make a shallow cut 1cm from the edge and use this to start the roll. Roll up the still warm cake with the paper. Place it seal side down and allow to cool completely.

6 In a medium bowl, stir the yogurt to loosen. Add the lemon curd and stir gently to ripple through.

7 Unroll the cake and spread with the yogurt mix, leaving a 2cm edge all round.

8 Sprinkle over the fruit then re-roll loosely - so as not to squeeze out all the filling. Turn seam side down, cover with cling film and place in the fridge for an hour to set.

9 Decorate with sifted icing sugar, more fruit and wafer butterflies before serving.
