Jelly Roll

This is a homemade sponge cake filled with your favorite jelly or jam that even a novice baker can make.

Jelly Roll

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sifted cake flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 3/4 cup white sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tablespoons 2% milk 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting 1 cup strawberry jam

Instructions

1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan with parchment paper.

2 Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until thick and pale, about 5 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and milk. Stir in the dry ingredients gradually. The batter will be thin. Pour into the prepared pan.

3 Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the center springs back when pressed lightly. Don't over bake, or it may crack.

4 Generously dust a clean dish towel with confectioners' sugar. Turn the cake out onto the towel, and peel off the parchment paper. Gently roll up the cake using the towel, and let cool for about 10 minutes.

5 Unroll the cake, and spread an even coating of jam onto the top. Roll the cake back up into a tight spiral, and remove the towel. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.

I tried this recipe last night for a friend that wanted a sponge cake. I wanted her to test taste it first, so I used this recipe and she really loved it! She wanted a strawberry shortcake, so I think this'll definitely work. It was extremely easy to prepare and it baked up nicely in about nine or ten minutes. This one is going in my "book". Thanks!
