Jelly Roll

I love a jelly roll. Haven't had it in forever so my husband made me one for my birthday. His first time making a cake.

5          eggs room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp     vanilla
3/4 cup cake flour ( we used whole wheat flour and it turned out fine)
1 tsp     baking powder
1/4 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp  lemon juice
Raspberry jam or other filling

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare 10 x 15 inch jelly roll pan. Grease well. Line bottom with waxed paper.

Beat eggs in small mixing bowl untill frothy. Beating at high speed slowly add in sugar. Add vanilla. Continue beating untill mixture becomes thick. Transfer to larger bowl.

In a second bowl mix flour baking powder and salt together. Fold into egg mixture one third at a time untill all  is moistened. Spread into jelly roll pan. Bake in oven for 15 - 20 minutes.

Dampen a tea towel. Turn pan out immediately onto tea towel.

Carefully remove wax paper.

Trim edges.

Spread with jam.

Start at narrow end and carefully roll up onto roll untill its completely rolled up.

Transfer to plate and trim edges.
