Raspberry Jelly Roll


My favorite kind of desserts are the simple ones....rice pudding, carrot cake, pineapple upside down cake, chocolate pudding and one of my most favorite and one of the easiest to prepare is a jelly roll. All you need is a good jam and a recipe for a nice sponge cake and there you have it....easy peasy!

I used the Cook's Illustrated Foolproof Sponge Cake for the jelly roll and some seedless raspberry preserves for the jam but you can use any flavor you like (even Nutella makes a great, if not somewhat decadent, cake roll).

Any gal who can put away a mountain of Ferrero Rocher in 5 minutes is already a hero to me, but to also make this absolutely luscious jelly roll cake? I was practically raised on these but they were the store-bought ones from Love's Bakery in Hawaii. It's comfort food in the sweetest way!
