Jelly Swiss Roll with Les Confitures a L’Ancienne

biscuit roulade with butter cream and fresh berries

A10029 Redcurrant Raspberry

Ingredients

 

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 1/2 ounces caster sugar (superfine), plus 3 tablespoons for sprinkling or use icing sugar, for dusting
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour
  • For filling
  • 6 tablespoons Les Confitures a L’Ancienne redcurrant raspberry jam
  • 8 ounces heavy cream, whipped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line the base of a 10 by 15-inches Swiss roll or jelly roll pan with grease proof or parchment paper. Brush the base and sides of the pan with melted butter, and dust with flour.
  3. In a large bowl or in an electric food mixer, whisk the eggs, and sugar together, until light and fluffy, and then add the water, and vanilla extract.
  4. Sift in the flour, about a third at a time, and using a large metal spoon, fold it into the egg mixture.
  5. Pour the mixture gently into the prepared pan, and bake in the oven until the center of the cake is slightly springy and the edges have shrunk a little from the sides of the tin, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. Spread out a piece of parchment paper (slightly larger than the tin in size) on a work surface and sprinkle evenly with caster sugar (this stops the roll from sticking to the paper). Turn or invert the pan onto the sugared parchment paper, and then carefully remove the tin and parchment paper from the bottom of the cake.
  7. Place a slightly damp, clean tea or kitchen towel over the cake while it cools- this will prevent it from drying out and cracking when you roll it.
  8. When the cake is cool, spread the jam sparingly over the cake, leaving a 1-inch border. Repeat with the whipped cream. With the longest side facing you, roll up the Swiss roll away from you, then transfer to a plate to serve. Sprinkle the cake with caster sugar or dust with icing sugar to finish.
