A Jelly Roll is a cake made of thin sheets of sponge cake. Various types of Jellies or Jams are spread on this cake before it gets rolled-up. Jelly Rolls are also known as Swiss Rolls.
Kids love Jelly Rolls. This is definitely a big hit to the young (and to the young-at-heart). If you love Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich, strawberry jelly sandwich, or any sandwich with jams, you will surely love Jelly Roll.
Making yourself a Jelly Roll is not that hard. Although, you should be familiar with the basic aspects of making a cake such as mixing, folding, and baking, before trying this recipe. I recommend you to refer to our video in making Brazo de Mercedes so that you will be familiar with the techniques and procedures.
