Jelly Roll

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Nell Majeran

This recipe is so easy my mother would let me make it when I was only 10. I love raspberry and apricot jam, so those two would be used most often. Sometimes I would use lemon curd just to mix things up a bit.

The cake was a teeny bit dry but softened up after a couple of hours in plastic wrap. Not a crumb left over! Thanks Nell!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat eggs until thick. Gradually beat in remaining ingredients.
  2. Pour into jelly roll pan and bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes.
  3. While jelly roll is baking, lay out a clean linen dish towel and sift about 1/2 cup of confectiones sugar onto it.
  4. Do not let jelly roll cool after taking out of the oven. Immediately turn out onto the prepared dish towel. Spread with favorite jam or jelly and use towel to help roll into a log shape. Trim ends. The powdered sugar will have stuck to jelly roll. Let cool and serve.
