Jam Rolls have such a dainty appearance that you cannot resist grabbing one! Like open sandwiches, the unique selling proposition of Jam Rolls is that you can see what is inside, due to the exciting spiral shape in which it is cut – this makes the rolls totally irresistible.
This traditional Jam Roll recipe is made with eggs, to get a super-soft, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Cloaked in sugar and lined with mixed fruit jam, the rolls get an awesomely fruity aroma and flavour, which make them very, very desirable indeed!
