Finally a jelly roll recipe that is excellent and does not taste dry (or crack, dear forbid). I learned to make these many, many years ago and this is still a popular dessert - just not made by many people because they think they are difficult. So many variations when it comes to fillings - use your imagination. Do need to be eaten fresh tho.
