JAM ROLLS




JAM ROLLS these r my favorite when i was in INDIA ...i searched for jam rolls here in LA but couldn't get one...and finally i decided to make them...the rolls i had in india has mixed fruit jam and coconut topping instead of frosting......and today i made my own way of whipping cream frost with a teaspoon of gelatin to make its texture look stiff and thick.i used icing sugar instead of normal granulated sugar.for the sponge cake recipe i dint follow any recipes but i added an extra egg yolk,pinch of baking soda and two tablespoons of milk.it really came out well and it had the texture i needed inorder to roll the cake. luckly the cake didn't get cracks while rolling it...




for cake


3 eggs
flour
baking soda a pinch
baking powder 1 teaspoon
milk 2 table spoons
sugar
foil
non stick cooking spray
butter
jam of ur choice

for frosting

small box of heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 pack gelatin powder
2 tablespoons water
electric hand beater


prepare the cake batter (follow the link).take an oven proof tray place a foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray or butter.
pour the batter and make sure that the batter is only1/4 inch thick.



Bake it for 10 to 15 min on 350 degrees F or till a tooth pick comes out clearly.now meanwhile make the frosting with whipping cream.


Trim off the edges with a bread knife and make a perfect square out of it. roll with the towel as soon as u bake it.so that the cake stays moist and does not get cracks....



place the sqaure on a dry towel and fold it as closely as possible.

set it aside for 30 minutes.

after 30 min unroll the cake remove the towel and spread any jam of ur choice.


now roll it back very carefully.

dissolve the gelatin in 2 table spoons of water.now in a wide bowl pour in the heavy whipping cream,1/4 cup icing sugar,2 table spoons of gelatin water.beat on high till stiff peaks form and place it in a refridgerator for 45 min.save the time by doing it at the baking time.


now frost the roll with the whipped cream frost place a paper napkin on both the sides of the roll inorder to clean the mess easily.

frost the rolls and remove the papers.
decorate with straberries or oranges or with roses made with icing.
place it in the refridgerator till u serve.
slice it and serve.

Shanthi........Excellent.....Loved ur Jam rolls...I remember eating it back in India.....I have a doubt though.....You rolled the cake right....did it not break.....How come it was so stiff....? is it because it was thin...?

Sharmi said...

shanti, this looks too good. In India we call it swiss rolls. should the towel be a dry one? I simply loved the look and method in which you have made it. very delicious looking and great one for parties!

Your jam rolls look so good. Try sprinkling the towel with powdered sugar before rolling it to prevent it from sticking to the towel...

Nags said...

i never knew how jam rolls were made (or i never tried to guess!) but i am sure my bread will break off if i roll it out like this. how do you prevent that?

Linda said...

Hi Shanti, thanks for stopping by my blog! My goodness, I've only taken a look at a few posts and you are quite the baker! I admire that, cause I can't bake a thing :) Jam roll looks so pretty with the snow-white frosting and strawberries. I might have to try that, my daughter would love it :)

Hi Shanti...this looks great. U know can even do an ice-cream swiss roll for a cold dessert. Just soften the ice-cream, any flavor of your choice, soread it out, roll it up, andplace in freezer for 2-3 hours. Slices beautifully, and kids love it. I've done it with a chocolate swiss roll , with strawberry ice-cream, and drizzled melted chocolate on top. Great blog, with clear instructions...

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.
