Jam Roll

Jam Roll that is not a jam roll? Really Nina?

Jam Roll is just the baked side of this recipe, it is the inside however that takes it to another level. I have always been intimidated by making a jam roll and  you can read all about my issues with jamrolls here.

Jam Roll

I received a beautiful bouquet of roses from a dear friend and looking at their beautiful colors, I just felt inspired to do some baking and use the roses as my decoration. From there on my mind went crazy and we ended up making a jam roll with Turkish delight cream filling. OTT, over-the-top delicious! Making a jam roll is the easiest thing and it literally bakes in 10 minutes. So you can quickly slip away to the kitchen when friends arrive for tea and appear like a domestic goddess with a freshly baked jamroll. Think about the flavor possibilities…….. banana and caramel, without a doubt the kids favorite, chocolate and pepermint crisp, strawberry jam and cream…… yes once you’ve mastered the art, you can make a different jam roll every time.

Jam Roll

Jam Roll with Turkish Delight Cream

makes 1


4 jumbo eggs

100 ml caster sugar

210 ml flour

a pinch of salt

For the Filling

125 g butter – room temperature

250 ml cream cheese

500 ml icing sugar

10 ml rose syrup

8 blocks Turkish Delight

fresh rose petals


Preheat oven to 180 C. Line a 30 x 30 cm baking sheet or oven pan with silicon paper and I take no chances and even spray the paper with Spray n Cook! Place the eggs and sugar in your mixer and beat until light and fluffy and more than double in volume. The more air you can get into the cake, the lighter it will be! This is called the ribbon stage. Mix the salt and flour together. Remove the bowl from the mixer and gently fold the flour into the egg mixture with a metal spoon. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Here is where the fun starts. While the cake is baking place a damp drying cloth on a flat work surface. Place a layer or wax paper over the cloth and sprinkle some sugar or castor sugar on the paper. When the cake is done baking, remove from the oven and turn upside down onto the sugar. The silicon paper is now facing you! Gently remove the silicon paper and place another layer of wax paper over the cake. Gently roll up the cake, using the cloth and paper to help you. NB: Do not roll the paper and cloth up with the cake, just used it is help. Allow the cake to cool completely.

Now for the filling

Place the butter in your mixer and whip until the butter is light and creamy. Add the icing sugar and keep mixing until the icing sugar is incorporated. Now add the cream cheese spoon-by-spoon until the mixture is light and creamy. Fold in the rose syrup.

Unroll the cake and spread 3/4 of the cream cheese mix on the jam roll. Cut some of the Turkish Delight into tiny little squares and place on the cream. Roll up on the long side. Spread the other cream cheese mix on top of the roll, add some Turkish Delight nuggets and fresh rose petals. make a big pot of team and share some love with your friends.

    Looks magnificent as usual, Nina. Unfortunately Turkish delight does not seem to exist in France, at least not here in the countryside.
