Jelly Roll


Back with the Cake Slice Bakers this month baking a delicious Jelly Roll picked from four delicious choices. It was hard to decide from the four choices this month. Their was a Sand Torte, Oreo Cookie Cake, Blueberry Muffins, and this delicious Jelly Roll.


The recipe was pretty simple to follow. The cake roll starts with a simple sponge cake, filled with a tart delicious raspberry filling. The recipe doesn't call for the cake roll to be coated in the filling and rolled in coconut, but since this cake roll is almost identical to the Mexican Pan Dulce I grew up with, I decided to give it that twist.


The Jelly Roll was delicious, not too sweet, and very tart. Next time around I'm going to make sure I adjust the sugar in the filling to cut back the tartness, although good, not my preference. Or, I could go with a strawberry preserve, which would be more like the flavor of the Mexican Pan Dulce I grew up with.

That turned out so pretty! I love the finishing touch that you put on it of the extra filling and coconut. I have yet to make a cake roll, I really need to give it a try!

I love the little twist you added with the coconut on the outside. It really makes this so lovely. I wanted to make this one too but I could not resist the Oreo Cake. I am so glad to see this turned out well :)

That is so pretty. I love that you added the coconut. I want to make a roll type cake, because I've never made one. I was packing my house up when I was baking, so the muffins were the best choice. I will try this, but with a sweet fruit instead of a tart one.
