This recipe brings back memories when I was growing up. Having a Jelly Roll was a holiday staple and I remember my mom rolling the thin cake in a sugar covered towel. I think kitchen memories are some of the best you can have. No doubt, whatever kitchen memory you have growing up was a labor of love. I think the popularity of the basic Jelly Roll has diminished over time; I think it is one of the best desserts you can serve. It is not too sweet, easy to prepare and always looks beautiful with every slice. I like to use red currant jelly, my mom always used red raspberry jam, the choice is yours…..the resutls will be delicious!
