Rolled Jelly Cake


  • 3 eggs, yolks and whites beaten separately
  • 1 heaped cup of sugar
  • 1 scant cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoonful of baking powder, sifted with flour
  • pinch of salt, sifted with flour
  • 1/4 cup of boiling water


Mix as in sponge cake; add the water last, and bake in a large roasting-pan, spreading the batter as thinly as possible. It will bake in ten minutes. When done, and while still hot, spread with any acid jelly, and roll carefully from one side. This cake is nice for lining Charlotte-Russe molds also. For that purpose the water may be omitted, its only use being to make the cake roll more easily.
