1/1 Photo of Finnish Jaakko’s Dream Torte (Jaakon Unelmakaaretorttu) Cake Rol
Jaakko Kolmonen is a chef on Finnish television. His rolled cake is delicate and simple to make. Use whatever fresh fruit or berries in season. Finns often use a finely textured, fresh milk cheese called rahka in combination with whipped cream in cake fillings to stabilize the cream. Ricotta makes an acceptable substitute.

Units: US | Metric
- 4 eggs (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- powdered sugar (sometimes called icing sugar or confectioners')
- 1Line a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan with parchment or waxed paper and butter bottom and sides of the pan. Dust with flour. Preheat oven to 375°F.
- 2In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs until foamy. Add the sugar GRADUALLY and continue beating until light and lemon colored, about 5 minutes at high speed.
- 3SIFT the flour and baking powder together over the mixture and carefully fold in using a rubber spatula.
- 4Turn mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly to the edges and corners. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the top springs back when touched.
- 5While cake is baking tear off a doubled length of paper toweling, folding it to about 18 inches in length. Generously dust the toweling with powdered sugar.
- 6When cake is baked, loosen the edges and invert immediately onto the sugar dusted towel. Peel off the parchment or waxed paper and roll up the cake, starting at a narrow end, rolling the towel into the cake. Allow to cool completely.
- 7To prepare the filling, combine the ricotta and whipping cream in a bowl and beat at high speed until rather stiffly whipped. Blend in the powdered sugar and vanilla.
- 8Carefully unroll the cake. Spread with the creamy mixture and berries. Roll up again. Place on serving plate and chill, covered, until ready to serve. 6 to 8 servings.
