A Jelly Roll Is A Sweet Delight

This is a wonderful simple recipe for a jelly roll cake that I found in my collection of high school recipes.These cakes come to be very unique especially when you can add your favorite food items to the filling such as fruits,whipping cream,or anything that you would like to add.In this cake recipe I chose to go with just a simple strawberry jam filling .

This jelly roll had a great texture combination of spongy,airy and crumbly.Its flavor had a mild sweet along with the filling giving it a fruity aspect as well adding more sweetness to the overall cake.Jelly rolls are a crowd pleaser cake due to the fact of its neat and simple appearance. When I made this cake it was gone in no time especially with being a cake that doesn't make you really full after the first piece.That's another bonus with making this cake people will come back for seconds and then realize they came back more then twice.


You don't have to just have jam or jelly you can add your own favorite fresh chopped fruits, dried fruits, nuts or whipped cream. Anything that you think would be tasty go ahead and add it to the rolled cake.

Enjoy! And experiment with your own ingredients.
