I have always wanted to make a Buche de Noel for Christmas Day dessert.but .. I think I should at least try to make a plain jelly roll first.
I have fond memories of my Grandmother making a delicious jelly roll when she came to visit. She never used a recipe just made it out of her head..nor did she ever write down these wonderful items she made...... so I went on a search for a recipe and found one at Cooks . com if you want to check it out.
Mixer at work beating eggs for 5 minutes.
Cake mixture in parchment lined pan.
Rolling warm cake up in icing sugar dusted very clean tea towel.
Finished product, used sour cherry filling instead of raspberry jam, looks good.
I was happy that I could roll it up and unroll with out the cake cracking , not so happy with the cake, dry not tender, tho the flavour is good .This recipe would be good if lemon or cream filling was used , not for jelly or jam.
