Our first attempt at making a jam roulade was a huge success. Did you know you only need some flour, sugar, eggs and jam to create this tasty dessert at home? It’s surprisingly easy to make, and a lot cheaper and healthier too.
Jam roulade is commonly known as a Swiss roll or a jelly roll, but I prefer calling it a roulade for three reasons:
- The Swiss didn’t invent the “Swiss roll”.
- Jelly, for me, is the wobbly dessert stuff, not jam.
- The word roulade is said to originate from French rouler, meaning “to roll”.
However, call it whatever you want because as Juliet says,
What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.
―William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
She’s right. This jam roulade/swiss roll/jelly roll tastes absolutely delicious no matter what you call it.
