A jelly roll recipe (or Swiss roll if you live in the UK) made with rice flour is an ideal treat for anyone on the gluten free diet. It can be used as a train birthday cake, or covered in icing and dusted with confectioner's (icing) sugar, as a Christmas yule log.
You will need a jelly roll pan to cook this cake. If you do not have one of these, I have found some on Amazon.com and added links to the right hand side of this page for your convenience. Ready? Let's get started.
Sift together in a bowl...
- 1/4 cup gluten free cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup brown rice flour
- 1/3 cup fine castor sugar
- 2 teaspoons GF baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
Separate 3 eggs, then in a separate bowl, beat together...
- 1/4 cup sunflower oil
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 egg yolks
...and fold into the dry ingredients.
If you are short on bowls you may now wish to wash up the empty one, or use a third to whisk...
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
...then fold into the batter. Pour the mixture into a lined jelly roll pan and bake at 200C or 450F for 8-10 minutes.
