I loved the days my Mom made jelly rolls. The words “jelly roll’ is its own definition. jellyroll – thin sheet of sponge cake spread with jelly and then rolled up to make a cylindrical cake.


  • 5 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Domino granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup cake flour, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp double acting baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Domino's powdered sugar
  • tart jelly
  • sweetened whip cream (optional)


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Combine yolks and vanilla extract in a large bowl and beat well. Gradually beat the granulated sugar into the egg yolks until light and fluffy.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold gently into yolk mixture.

Step 4

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together and fold gently into egg mixture.

Step 5

Spread the batter into a 10x15 jelly roll pan, generously greased and lined with waxed paper and greased again.

Step 6

Bake for 15 minutes or until done. Invert onto oven linen towel dusted with powdered sugar.

Step 7

Remove wax paper and roll the narrow edge of the cake by lifting and pushing gently with the towel. Wrap cloth tightly around roll and cool on rack with open edge of cake turned down.

Step 8

Unroll cake, spread with jelly, roll again without towel and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with whipped cream.
