My first jelly roll!
This is stuffed with fox grape jelly, a wedding gift from Vera Edmonds, a local woman whom I’ve never met. She knows Chris through his work with the local newspaper. Edmonds’ delicious grape jelly and others have served us for the past few years.
When making a jelly roll, I’d recommend making sure the batter is evenly distributed. You don’t want one part burning while the rest is still baking. I had to trim off one corner because the batter was too thin and it burned.
I’d also stick with aluminum foil or maybe even parchment paper. Though the recipe recommends foil or wax paper, I felt like I needed a smoke mask while the cake baked. Wax paper, apparently, smokes no matter the temperature.
