"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

3 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup of water
1 teaspoon vanilla
cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
About 2/3 cup of Jelly or Jam
Powdered sugar

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees
2. Line a jelly roll pan, 15 x 10 x 1 inch, with aluminum foil, then grease with shortening.
3. Beat eggs in large bowl on high speed until thick and lemon color. Gradually beat in granulated sugar. Beat in water and vanilla on low speed. Gradually beat in flour, baking powder, and salt until smooth. Pour into pan; spread into corners.
4. Bake until wooden pick, when inserted, comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Generously sprinkle powdered sugar on a towel a little larger than the cake.
5. Immediately loosen cake from pan and turn over onto the towel. Carefully remove foil. Trim off any crisp edges of the cake. While hot, carefully roll cake and towel from narrow end. Let cool on wire rack at least 30 minutes.
6. Unroll cake and remove towel. Beat jelly with fork just enough to soften; spread over cake. Roll up cake and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
