Still 15 days to go before we celebrate Ied Fitri - I'm just like others moslem who so exciting during Ramadan, and following my mom's step that always have a sweetest stuff on the table every afternoon, so every family member can enjoy a simple snack and a cup of sweet tea for iftar (fasting break). This time I just like to practice baking roll cake, actually a pretty much easy than I tought :P
If i can make, you can make too.. here is the recipe
STRAWBERRY JAM ROLL CAKE
4 eggs, separated
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
3/4 cup cake flour, sifted
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting, sifted
1 cup jam or jelly, stirred well
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl beat egg whites until stiff but not dry and set aside. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks until light. Gradually add the sugar and vanilla, and mix well. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the sifted flour mixture to the egg yolk mixture. Fold in the egg whites into the egg mixture and pour the batter into a 15 by 10 by 1-inch jelly roll pan lined with waxed paper. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cake is golden.
Loosen edges of cake, invert cake onto a towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Gently peel wax paper off cake. Trim 1/4-inch of hard crust off each long side of the jelly roll cake. Begin with the narrow side and roll the cake and towel up together. Cool cake on rack, seam side down, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Once cake has cooled, gently unroll and spread cake with jam or jelly and re-roll. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar
