A light red velvet roll cake with a cream cheese filling
Print Recipe



  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • ¼ cup monkfruit sweetener or other low carb sweetener
  • 1 ½ cups cream heavy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Make the sponge

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees
  • Grease and line a rectangle baking tin ( 9 x 13 inch, 22.9cm x 33cm) with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • In another medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, vanilla and monkfruit together.
  • Add the coconut flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and red food colouring. Mix well and add any additional colouring to get the shade of red you want.
  • Gently fold in the egg whites until you have an even coloured batter.
  • Pour the cake batter into the baking tin and smooth evenly.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until firm.
  • Remove the baking tin from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Put a large piece of parchment paper on your countertop and place the baking tin on the parchment paper, sponge facing down. Remove the tin from the sponge.
  • Using the parchment paper on the top of the sponge, gently roll up the cake. This is to keep the sponge in the correct shape before adding the filling.
  • Set aside to cool.

Make the Filling

  • Whisk the cream cheese and the monkfruit sweetener in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Add the vanilla extract and the cream. Continue to whisk until the mixture is smooth and thick enough to spread.

To Assemble

  • Gently unroll the cake, remove the top layer of parchment paper and spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the sponge.
  • Using the outer layer of parchment paper roll up the sponge again.
  • Trim the edges for a neater sponge.
  • Slice, eat and enjoy!
