Swiss Roll Recipe / Jelly Roll Recipe / Jam Roll Recipe

Swiss rolls are so much fun to make, most of you think it is a complicated thing to make, but i am telling it is more easy than making any other cakes or desert because it just take less than 12 mins to bake and the batter can be made in less than 10 mins and it just need a handful of ingredients. Plus it has no fat in them so it is pretty healthy.

Preparation Time : 20 mins
Baking Time : 10 to 12 mins
Makes : 10 slices


Eggs - 3
Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup + 1.5 tblspn / 120 grams

Warm Water - 2 tblspn
Jam - as needed ( I used a mixed fruit jam)
Icing Sugar or Powdered sugar for sprinkling

(My 1 cup measures 240 ml )


Preheat oven to 190 Degree C.

Start by preparing a swiss roll pan by applying some oil over it, then line it with parchment paper and apply oil on that as well. Now sprinkle it with some flour and tap off the excess flour. Set this aside till use.

Now take eggs in a bowl and beat till fluffy.

Now add in sugar and beat till nice and fluffy again.

Add in vanilla and warm water and beat till fluffy.

Now sieve in flour two time and fold very gently till it is well combined,

Pour this in prepared pan and spread thinly.

Bake this for 10 to 12 mins.

Remove it and let it cool for 2 mins.

Spread a parchment paper on a table, sprinkle with some more powdered sugar or icing sugar. Flip the cake over the sugar. Peel off the parchment carefully. Cover the entire cake with a slightly damp cloth and let it cool completely.

Now spread some jam all over it and carefully roll it.

Place this in a tray and sprinkle with icing sugar.

Slice and serve.

  12. Replies
    1. can u pls tell me either eggs can be replaced with other ingredient in this recipe?

  13. @kishinTHere is no replacement for eggs in this recipe.

  14. I baked it for ten minutes. the appearance was same like your cake. But it was not spongy and flexible hence it could not be rolled. As I rolled, it broke in three parts :P and looked like a clumsy Swiss sandwich :))) brothers teased me a lott and I am sure it's going down in our family history records to narrate it to my children and grand-children. :-/ :)).
    Is there a possibility that by adding baking soda or baking powder it could have become spongy and flexible?


  15. @Myrai think u haven't whipped the egg enought. Whip it till it is airy and fluffy, that will give the fluffyness and flexiblity. baking soda and baking powder is not necessary

  16. Hi Aarthi I baked t for 15 min n wen I rolled it came without breaking but the cake was not soft it was like a rubber . Please tell me y it has become like that

  17. @kalpana palaniveli am not so sure, may be you didn't whip it enough

  18. Please tell me the size of your baking pan....

  19. Aarthi, ur roll looks superb, but unfortunately i dont have an oven at home,but i really wish to make rolls like this, can u suggest me any alternate easy and no bake method, like making the same with some store bought breads or cakes and apply jam etc.... will be so happy if u suggest me a method,looking forward for ur suggetsion

  20. @Anonymousi am not sure, but will look into it
