Jam Cake Roll – Stove Top!

Being in traffic is a big challenge as far as working people in this part of the world are concerned. Most of the offices start between 7:30 and 9 am and so to say, the road are clogged up from as early as 6 am. Evening madness starts from 5 pm right up-to 9 pm. Another interesting thing is that almost 80% of the vehicles have a single traveler, yes, the driver only, and that includes mine! Gets me always thinking why I can’t have a carpool or use a car share, but then we always love to find umpteen number of reasons not to do it… The flexibility of driving on your own, playing what you want on your set, the only me-time you get in the mad rush of life these days, etc. etc. does not allow me to share my car with anybody or go around with anybody else. And that does mean that I am solely responsible for reaching office late if I am not able to start early or manage my morning madness… hmm… One thing I love to do when I am stuck in traffic is to observe people in the other cars. No, no, I am not peeping into their privacy but stuff people do in their own cars amazes me. People eating their breakfast, enjoying their cup of tea, doing their full make-up, biting their nails, fiddling with the switches on their dashboard, taping madly on their phones which means their hands are completely off the steering wheels, looking out pointlessly into the sky, going red with frustration, singing along with the song playing out in their car, having a boring expression as everybody else in the car is sleeping…. I just could go on and on. Off late, two incidents affected me – a car behind mine had a dad-daughter duo, the girl must be my Rasha’s age. They were having a lovely time, laughing and talking, the camaraderie was so visible, MaShaAllah… another time, I saw a lady staring into her mobile and crying out, she had no sunglasses to cover her eyes and therefore her tears were very visible. I felt so bad… just quickly prayed for her that Allah gives her the courage to go through what she must have gone through then and pushed my eyes off her, not to feel more disturbed…

 

There was always a reason why I never tried swiss rolls, and the main reason was that I don’t have a pan to make it. Or maybe I am just keeping that as a reason! The fear of breaking and having an odd looking roll does put me off to try it. When I saw this recipe at several places, I wanted to try but somehow it kept going off my mind. One morning, when the kids demanded for something sweet and I suddenly remembered of this easy swiss roll, made on stove top that gets ready in just half an hour’s time! I used my homemade strawberry jam in this roll. The kids absolutely loved it and it was polished off within minutes. Off to the way how it is done…Β Recipe from here

 

Ahem ahem… please don’t think I am going for any big time course… I just used my B’s engineering book to take this picture! Since he is employed now and his books are just lying there, I put it to good use by using it as my prop, hehe…

  17. Wow, a stove top jam roll…isnt that the easiest thing ever then? πŸ™‚ I'll try this on some lazy weekend…we've been having such busy weeks, hardly get any time to see my bloggie buddies creations. And I liked the way u described the traffic scene, putting on full makeup kinda cracked me up , coz I do that sometimes , but when i'm on passenger seat that is πŸ˜›

    1. I do my make-up (that's hardly anything, line my eyes down, mascara and a dash of gloss! hehe) while on the driving seat, so I am pretty dangerous u see… but when the traffic is just not moving, it's fine… πŸ™‚ Do try it, am sure u will like it, Manju… thanks a lot…

  19. Stove top ?!?! Very inviting and bookmarked !

    1. Thank you so much Sangeetha…

  20. Such a great job on that roll, girlie. The not having a jelly roll pan is my reason too for not doing it. Yours came out perfect. Also I love how you started out, car, driving, observations, the whole bit. I must hand it to you though, driving through Dubai requires a great amount of deft and skill and soo much patience.

    1. Oh, I agree with you regarding the driving here… some people are just too rash! Hope you try this, Tisadee and you will like it…

    1. Thank you so much Shabbu…

  37. Loved the read and I feel touched by the way to observe and care for people. The quick prayers that you do, clearly shows what a beautiful soul you are.
    The rolls sound so cool made on the stove top, they are quite like the pillow cakes that I make in Sandwich maker. would try this some time.

    1. Those words are so high for me, Pari… it's just that I somehow can imagine myself in her shoes, and it gives me goosebumps to see people go through lows, some people can take it and some can't… everybody needs everybody else's prayers to keep going, isn't it? Your pillow cakes are definitely on my radar to try it soon for the kids… thanks a lot for coming by…

  38. I love the opening before the tempting rolls. Its the same over Raf. Sometimes I just drag going to work because of the mad traffic jam. The rolls are stunning and you sure rolled them out perfectly. By the way, I went over the instructions over and over just to get it right: made over the stove. Good idea and good for me. Hopefully the madness at work will cool down. I want to try this recipe.

    1. Yes, made on the stove top! Hope you enjoy it dear… Thanks a lot, Nava…

  39. Hi itha..I mostly bake the cakes,but didn't dare to make on stove top ..what amaze me is that u didn't add baking pdr that is used in most of the cakes,but ur cake roll looks moist and yummy,even on stove top…I made this cake today..I followed ur recipe and method,made on stove top,but mine went flop..my cake turns very thin and didn't rise up..mine turns into thick dosa…could you explain the reason ???

    1. Hi Faheema… first of all, beat the egg lots just like how we make back home… beat it so much that it becomes really pale… the pour into a greased fry pan… it will settle on the top when done… hope it will turn out well next time InShaAllah…

  40. yes itha..I beat eggs at high speed as you said in recipe…Hope it will be better next time, In Sha Allah…Thanx for the reply πŸ™‚

    1. Try in a smaller fry pan n cook on simmer with closed lid, InShaAllah will be ok… πŸ™‚
