Filled with the tangy sweetness of wild fruit marmalade and dusted with coconut flour, these cake rolls offer a burst of flavor in every bite. Let’s get started on this effortless treat.


  • 4 eggs
  • 120g flour
  • 4 tsp icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
  • 8g baking powder
  • 2 tbsp oil (vegetable or your preference)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Wild fruit marmalade, for filling
  • Coconut flour, for dusting


  1. Beat the Eggs and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and icing sugar until the mixture is pale and frothy. This step is crucial for creating a light and airy texture in the cake.
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. This ensures your cake rolls will be fluffy and rise beautifully.
  3. Make the Batter: Gradually fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, being careful not to deflate it. Add the oil and lemon juice, folding gently to incorporate everything into a smooth batter.
  4. Cook the Cake: Pour the batter onto a large, microwave-safe flat dish or a silicone baking mat that fits in your microwave. Spread the batter evenly. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until the cake is fully set. Microwave power levels can vary, so keep an eye on it to prevent overcooking.
  5. Add the Marmalade: Once the cake is cooked and slightly cooled, spread a generous layer of wild fruit marmalade over the surface. If the cake is too hot, the marmalade might run, so allow it to cool just enough.
  6. Roll the Cake: Start from one edge and carefully roll the cake into a log. The warmth of the cake will make this easier, but be gentle to avoid cracks.
  7. Garnish: Dust the cake roll with coconut flour (or desiccated coconut) and additional icing sugar for a sweet finish.
  8. Serve: Slice the roll into portions. This dessert is best enjoyed fresh and can be served either slightly warm or at room temperature.
