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...
baking soda a pinch
baking powder 1 teaspoon
milk 2 table spoons
non stick cooking spray
jam of ur choice
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.
now roll it back very carefully.
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.
