Time to show you some more baking
i did last weekend :o)
Homemade - Swiss roll -
or i think in the USA it`s jello roll ?
It had been years since i made one with jam ,
i didn`t have any - so i used lemon curd
instead - I got some help later on - as you`ll see -
my other half videod me rolling it !!
When i was just going to snap pictures for you ;o)
Preheat oven to 200 f

Whisk together 3 eggs and 3oz caster sugar
until it forms peaks , then slowly fold in 3oz flour .

Pour into a tin lined with greased proof paper
my size tin is 12 x 9 " - an inch in depth .

It will only take 10 minutes to cook -
so don`t go doing something else ;o)
While mine was cooking -
i prepared another sheet of paper
sprinkled with sugar - no caster sugar left
it will look better with that though ;o)
I then put 4 Tblsp of lemon curd ( or jam ) and warmed
it in the microwave - to spread better .

10 minutes later ...
You have to be quick with the next stages -
Take it out of the tin and place the cooked side on the sugar -
then quickly peel away the paper .Spread the warm
chosen filling on - Then it`s rolling it up !

Not bad huh ??

Here i am rolling it up - ahem -
excuse the mess - and if i`d have known
i was going to make an appearance on here -
I would have tidied myself up a little !!
I`m not one for being in the limelight , only
on the odd occasion - and my Christmas video message -
i do have an idea for that this year - he he !!
And hey - it was late sunday morning -
that`s my excuse and i`m sticking to it !!

Leave to cool and slice -
and enjoy !!

This only lasted 2 days ..

the day after was better when the

filling had soaked into the sponge slightly .

Julia Child?? Martha Stewart?? No, it's Nigella Lawson!!!!

Ooh I loved seeing in your kitchen (felt like I was right there with my cuppa!) and watching you work...and your videographer speaks!!!

This looks divine Carolyn!! To me it's swiss roll too though it's also marketed as jelly roll.

I loved seeing you work in the kitchen and hearing your lovely accents! The cake looks so yummy. Thank you so much for your well-wishes for my son. It means the world to me! **kisskiss** Deb

I can see why this didn't last very long. If it tastes as good as it looks, it must have been yummy!

You mean there's none left??? I was going to come over for some!! I wish! lol It does look so delicious and how I loved watching you on the video. I've only tried once to make a roll like that and it was a disaster...I obviously did something wrong! lol xoxo
