Directions for the Strawberry cheesecake roulade

  1. Step 1Preheat oven to 200°C. Brush a 25 x 30cm (base measurement) Swiss roll pan with oil to grease. Line base and 2 long sides with non-stick baking paper to reach 2cm above sides. Dust with flour.
  2. Step 2Use an electric beater to beat the eggs, caster sugar and vanilla in a bowl until the mixture is thick and pale, and a ribbon trail forms when the beater is lifted. Use a metal spoon to fold in the flour. Spoon into the prepared pan. Bake for 8 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  3. Step 3Dust a sheet of non-stick baking paper with icing sugar. Turn the cake onto the paper. Remove top sheet from cake. Cool.
  4. Step 4Use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese and extra caster sugar in a bowl until smooth. Add the yoghurt and beat to combine. Stir in the strawberries.
  5. Step 5Place the water in a heatproof bowl and sprinkle with gelatine. Place bowl in a saucepan. Add enough boiling water to come halfway up the side of the bowl. Stir until gelatine dissolves. Add to the yoghurt mixture. Stir until well combined.
  6. Step 6Spread the yoghurt mixture over the cake, leaving a 1cm-wide border on 1 long side. Starting from the opposite long side, and using the paper as a guide, roll up the cake. Wrap in plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight, or until firm.
  7. Step 7To make the strawberry sauce, place strawberries and sugar in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth.
  8. Step 8Place the roulade on a serving platter and top with the extra strawberries. Dust with icing sugar and drizzle over the sauce to serve.
