Classic Swiss Roll (Biscuit roulé à la confiture)

 Biscuit roulé à la confiture, inspired by Françoise Bernard's.
I found it very practical and easy to make with not much preparation...
only with a little adjustment for my version. Here we go...:)
3 eggs (large)
100 g caster or sifted icing sugar 
1 sachet vanilla sugar or 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
30 g plain flour
30 g corn flour
a pinch of salt
200 g Raspberry or Strawberry Jam
For my aunt :-))
Filled roll is best eaten immediately!
Preheat oven to moderately hot 200°C. Line a 22 x 33 cm base the tin with grease-proof paper. 
To make the roll:
  • Using electric beater, beat egg yolks, 50 sugar and vanilla essence in small mixing bowl over hot water until thick and pale.
  • In another bowl, also over hot water, beat the egg whites and salt, until they stand in peaks. beat in the remaining sugar until they become glossy meringue;
  • Sift the flour and corn flour onto grease-proof paper. Fold in rapidly half of the flour to the yolk mixture, then half of the whites, using a wooden spoon. Repeat with the rest of the flour as well as the whites until just combined.
  • Spread mixture evenly into prepared tin; smooth surface. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Turn the cake out onto a dry, clean tea-towel covered with greaseproof paper that has been sprinkled with the extra sugar. Then using the tea-towel as a guide, carefully roll cake up with the paper; leave for 5 minutes or until cool. 
  • Unroll cake, discard paper. Spread with jam; reroll. Trim ends with knife; decorate as desire.
Served with a cup of hot green tea 
or coffee:-))
Ta da! My Swiss Roll (Raspberry jam filling),
topped with reduced fat whipped cream! :-))
Hint: Jam is best beaten with a spatula for 30 seconds before it is applied to the cake. This will soften the jam and make it easier to spread.
"What does it mean to be totally loving? It means to be fully present, in every single moment.
To be fully aware. To be fully loving means to be fully naked,
without hidden agenda or hidden motive,
without hidden anything."
