Bolo de Rolo: One Of The Most Versatile Of All The Brazilian Desserts

One of the most iconic Brazilian desserts is the Bolo de Rolo, a layered sponge cake filled with sweet guava paste and then rolled to create a spiral effect. This dessert provides delicious buttery cake and filler in every bite. 

The Bolo de Rolo, which translates as “roll cake” in Portuguese, is one of the more traditional Brazilian desserts originating from the northeastern region of Brazil, notably the state of Pernambuco. 

Preparing the Bolo de Rolo is labor-intensive and requires bakers to have a certain level of skill and precision. Chef Mardhory Santos-Cepeda has perfected the art of the Bolo de Rolo and makes this delicacy in the traditional way while adding a unique spin. 

Made from a sponge cake batter occasionally infused with a hint of flavor, such as vanilla or lemon zest, sheet cake is spread thinly along a baking sheet before being cooked, cooled, and set to produce a soft, pliable cake. 

Once cooled, the thin layer cake is given a layer of sweet paste or frosting. In traditional Bolo de Rolo baking, the paste is a sweet guava that adds a sweet, tangy flavor that pairs well with the light texture and taste of the layer cake.

Once frosted, the cake is delicately hand-rolled to create a spiral effect that gives the Bolo de Rolo its unique, distinctive appearance. 

In Brazil, the Bolo de Rolo is often served on special occasions or as a simple snack with coffee or tea. 

Kouklet Bakery’s creative approach the Bolo de Rolo is an ideal option for special events such as birthdays, the birth of a child, anniversaries, weddings, holidays, and more. 

One of the best Brazilian desserts to share, the Bolo de Rolo is perfect for every occasion. Let’s look at some from Kouklet Bakery that you can order for your next special event!
