Jam Swiss Roll

Kids are in vacation, obviously am bit busy with them.Even my oven is quite busy now, we are in baking mood. Two days back, my lil one asked me to bake a cake with jam, i know he was asking to make a roulade aka swiss roll, he helped me and we baked the simple vanilla roll with green and rose food colour as something christmassy. This roll is really very quite easy to prepare and you can also prepare them with your favourite flavour or favourite spread eventhough my choice went for strawberry jam. You can serve this super spongy swiss roll as dessert with a scoop of icecream or with a simple chocolate sauce.

My theme for this week's blogging marathon theme is kid's delight-desserts, obviously swiss roll can be served very well for dessert with an icecream or with a sauce. If you dont like adding the food colour, just skip them. Check out the other bloggers running this 23rd edition of blogging marathon here.Do check ChampaSrivalliSumana Deepak,Veena,Jayasri and Preeti Deo wat they baked for the 11th day of bake-a-thon.Sending to Show Me Your HITS-Festive Foods guest hosted by Roshni,event by Sangeetha.

4nos Eggs
1/2cup Sugar
1/4cup Flour
1/4cup Cornflour
1/4tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Vanilla essence
Food colour (rose & green)
Strawberry Jam
Confectioner's sugar (for dusting)

Preheat the oven to 250F.

Separate the eggs whites and egg yolks.Sieve together the flours,baking powder and keep aside.

Beat the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until they turns smooth and pale yellow creamy mixture, add slowly the sieved flours,vanilla essence and mix everything well.

Meannwhile beat the egg whites separately with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form, gently fold the egg whites to the already prepared flour mixture and mix everything well.

Divide the batter into three equal parts and take them in a bowl, colour one with rose food colour while the another with green colour.

Pour the batter side by side in a 10x15inch jelly roll pan lined with greased baking paper..

With a tooth pick, make some swirls in the batter and bake for 15minutes and immediately roll the baked cake in a slightly wet towel and let it get cool.

Spread generously the strawberry jam and roll it tightly, cover the roll with a cling wrap and let it sit for an hour in fridge.

Dust generously with the confectioner's sugar.

Slice it and enjoy.
