  • 4 eggs

  • 100 g flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 g jam of your choice (strawberry, apricot, raspberry, etc.)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (gas mark 6). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and powdered sugar until pale and fluffy.
  3. Gently add the sifted flour and baking powder to the egg and sugar mixture. Fold in using a spatula, taking care not to overmix to keep the dough light.
  4. Pour the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread evenly with a spatula.
  5. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until golden and bouncy to the touch.
  6. Meanwhile, prepare a clean tea towel and sprinkle generously with powdered sugar.
  7. As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, carefully turn it over onto the tea towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Carefully remove the parchment paper.
  8. Roll up the cake, starting with the shorter side, using the tea towel to hold it tight. Leave to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, carefully unroll the rolled cake and spread the jam evenly over the entire surface.
  10. Re-roll the cake and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with powdered sugar for a finishing touch.
