BLUEBERRY JELLY ROLL

Blueberry jelly roll

My mom used to make this jelly roll as the fastest dessert, when we had uninvited guests  or just a quick dessert for Sunday afternoon. And this simple jelly roll always tasted so heavenly soft and special. I believe, that all childhood memories are already very special to us, especially when it comes to food. That smell or texture of certain food, what you ate in childhood, will bring you in no time, into the comfort zone and this is why I love this jelly roll this much.

This jelly roll can be made with different fillings. You don’t need to be stuck with blueberry jam. You can use whipped cream, custard cream, butter cream or even ice cream. I think dark chocolate roll with white chocolate whipped cream would be a an amazing alternative for this blueberry filling, right ? Mmm yes, next time the roll will be all about chocolate 🙂

IMG_4758 with logoAs I mentioned before, this is very simple dessert, so you will need the basic baking tools such as large mixing bowl, standing mixer would be optional (you can use hand mixer), baking sheet and parchment paper.

As ingredients, we go with basics as well: flour, eggs, sugar, lemon zest and your favorite flavor of jelly. We will start with preheating the oven to 200 C / 400 F and line parchment paper on baking sheet. In a stand mixer, beat the egg yolks with vanilla sugar until creamy (for 5 minutes), stir in lemon zest and half of the sifted flour.In another bowl, place the egg whites, granulated sugar, pinch of salt and beat until it forms soft peaks. Add remaining flour.

Fold one-third of the egg-white mixture in the yolk mixture and
gently mixing them together. Then add this mixture to the remaining egg whites and fold  together gently, not to lose any air. Spread the batter on baking sheet, has to be 1 cm high. Bake for 12-15 min. or until golden light. Let cool for 5 min., then spread the jam evenly over the cake and gently (with light pressure) roll it. Trim the ends, dust with ice sugar, cut in a pieces and serve.
