Mom’s Jelly Roll

My mom used to make jelly rolls for her parents at their request. My grandmother was a fantastic cook, so I think it says a lot about my mom’s ability to make jelly rolls.

It is always a yummy treat.

  1. Paula! I have always wanted to make jellyrolls, but was confused on how you get them into the roll without breaking the cake or having them stick to your cooking rack … thanks for this tutorial and the hints! Now, as to fillings. Have you ever tried putting a mousse filling in your roll? I am thinking of a fun way to do a pumpkin mousse for Thanksgiving this year … what do you think?

    • I have not put mousse filling in this roll. I have put it in a chocolate roll that I sometimes make near Christmas. It works well. This is basically a sponge cake, so I think it should work as long as you let it cool completely before putting in the mousse to avoid any melting.

      Have you thought about putting pumpkin mousse in a pumpkin roll? I have a very good recipe that normally takes a cream cheese filling, but a pumpkin mousse sound really good. Hmm.. I should make a pumpkin roll…..

  2. Pumpkin roll, huh? This is sounding more and more fun …!

  3. You are hard core with your photos!! I miss your mom!!!

  4. terrific instructions and photos, thanks so much for taking the time to post this!
    sponge is the perfect cake for jelly rolls!
    i want to try this with nutella….
    or chocolate sponge with whipped cream….

  5. i never really realized before how many eggs jelly roll cakes call for. thats probably why they taste so good.

Speak Your Mind
