Swiss Cake Roll Copycat Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 15×10 inch jelly roll pan and line with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs on high speed for 5 minutes until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add granulated sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add in flour mixture, alternating with water, and beat until just combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared jelly roll pan and spread evenly. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cake is cooked through and springs back when touched.
