My friend's Grandmother made this one day and my family just gobbled it up. She then went to Germany before i could get her recipe. What I found is similar, something I found on the internet. I hope that you enjoy!

I make this last night. WOW, I can't believe how easy it was. I had been wanting to try it for a long time. I made my own angel food cake, and used non-dairy whipped topping. It came out of the pan really easy. I did have trouble figuring if it were done. It took 15 min., in my oven. It did crack, but I didn't let that bother me, just put whipp cream over the top and covered that up, and put some really big strawberry on the top, like the picture. My hubby was so impressed. We couldn't waite to eat some, and didn't waite for it to chill. It didn't want to stay in a circle, when I cut it. Not sure if it was because of the cracking, or that we didn't chill it. I can't waite to try it again. It is really good.
Great recipe...I too used Cool whip Strawberry and loved it...turned out real festive looking for Fathers Day..going to try this with blueberries and strawberries for the 4th..
This Strawberry Roll was wonderful. I made it for a family gathering this weekend and everybody loved it. I got lots of requests for the recipe as well. I did not use the heavy cream. I used Strawberry flavored Cool Whip instead. It was an easy recipe to prepare. I will make it again.
