Ingredients
  

  • 4 eggs
  • 4 oz caster sugar 100g
  • 4 oz self-rising flour or plain flour , 100g
  • 180 g blackberry Jam
  • 50 g icing sugar or granulated sugar
  • 150 ml cream whipped - optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  • Grease and line an oblong (13 x 9 inch) tin with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the 4 eggs with the sugar until it become very light and aerated.
  • The whisk should leave a figure of eight pronounced on the surface of the mixture when the whisk is lifted out of it.
  • Gently fold in the sifted flour with a metal spoon. Be very gentle so as not to knock any of the generated air out of the sponge base but also ensure that all of the flour is incorporated. Pour the mixture into a prepared Swiss roll tin.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, until well risen and golden brown and take the sponge out of the oven.
  • Once the sponge has cooled enough, sprinkle some granulated sugar or icing sugar then invert it onto a sheet of parchment or clean towel dusted with the sone icing sugar.
  • Peel the parchment used to bake the cake carefully and then spread with a thin layer of raspberry jam.
  • Carefully roll the Swiss roll up from the longest side rather than from the shortest.
  • Roll and slice into portions.
  • Sprinkle extra icing sugar if desired and serve with fresh berries and a dollop of cream.
