This originally recipe is very old. It has been following my mother – and now me, since the recipe originally comes from her old cookbook she used when she went to school!!! Isn’t that amazing?! – I love it!!



  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 cup of raspberry jam
  • confectioners suger for dusting


  1. To begin with you add all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Then you mix the dough. It’s a thin dough.
  3. Now you spread out the dough as evenly as possible on a piece of baking parchment on a baking tray (10 in x 12 in).
  4. Bake the cake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 8 minutes (be careful it doesn’t get too dark).
  5. While the cake is in the oven, place a new piece of baking parchment on the table and sprinkle it lightly with sugar.
  6. When the cake is finished baking you take it out of the oven but leave it on the baking parchment paper..
  7. Immediately hereafter, while cake is still warm, you flip the cake over so it’s upside down. Still attached to the baking parchment you used to bake it on.
  8. Now you place the warm cake on the new parchment paper that you previously sprinkled lightly with suger.
  9. The cake is now in a sandwich, in-between two pieces of parchment paper.
  10. Then carefully remove the baking parchment from the top of the cake. Thats the piece you baked the cake on.
  11. When the paper is removed you spread out a thin layer of jam on the whole surface of the cake.
  12. Everything has to be done while the cake is still warm. So you will have to move fast.
  13. Finally you roll the cake gently, but firmly, together from one end to the other (you can use the parchment paper to get a better hold).
  14. I like to cut off the not so beautiful ends of the rolled raspberry cake before I sprinkle it lightly with confectioners suger.


Enjoy freshly baked with a cup of hot tea or coffee.

If you are in the mood for it you can add Nutella in it instead of jam and then I would sprinkle with chocolate powder instead.
