Summer Desserts: Dutch Apron® Bakery Cake Rolls
This year has been full of many ups and downs packed full of uncertainty. The spring found us wanting to try to bake everything we had pinned over the last 10 years. Newly settled into the idea that it’s summer, there’s a glooming unknown for normalcy and I’m just a little tired of trying to recreate all those fabulous summer desserts saved on my hundreds of Pinterest boards, I’m turning to Dutch Apron® Bakery Cake Rolls to bring some smiles to our table. Already a family favorite because of their delicious Pumpkin Cake Rolls in the fall, we have recently discovered the other bakery cake roll varieties including Chocolate Crème, Lemon Crème and Strawberry Cheesecake. They are even sweeter when you deliver a roll to your neighbor’s door to brighten their day too. We’re giving away cake rolls to one of you, enter by leaving a blog post comment!
Dutch Apron Bakery is located in a small, Midwestern town, where they guarantee every cake roll is made with care. They believe that both everyday moments and extraordinary ones are worth celebrating. Without any activities outside of the home, it’s easy to forget the importance of a family meal together. Now, more than ever, coming together with your family for a meal is a powerful way to reconnect. In the early pandemic days, my oldest daughter would ask a long string of “what if…” questions. She had all topics covered and was most concerned about school closures, climbing team practice changes and her little sister’s insistence on a trip to the beach to celebrate her birthday. I hushed her away many times and tried not to focus on the unknown but as we moved into March, then April, May and now summer, we intentionally block out time to talk about the what-if’s. Some of their age-appropriate concerns feel silly but we’ve always stayed true to the notion of if it matters to you, it is important. Dinnertime at the table together is where we get the most out of these conversations and really get the opportunity to dive into both of our daughters’ worries.
In our home, we all have different preferences when it comes to dessert. Chocolate is my favorite but my husband will happily choose a slice of cheesecake over my choice. Our daughters like both and our oldest has recently decided she likes fresh citrus in desserts. Dutch Apron Bakery has something for everyone in our family.
I’ll always turn to the classic Pumpkin Cake Roll because it reminds me of my mom baking for the holidays but outside of the holiday season, the Chocolate Crème Cake Roll is my go-to. It is perfectly balanced with a sweet whipped créme filling.
The Lemon Crème Cake Roll is lighter and feels like an iconic summer dessert.
Your summer cheesecake dessert is the Strawberry Cheesecake Cake Roll. It’s filled with a sweet strawberry and cream cheese icing and reminds me of picking strawberries in Carlsbad during our family summer vacations.
