This roll is the perfect spring appetiser.


  • 6 eggs
  • 6 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp milk
  • 0.45 oz (13 g) baking powder
  • 3 tbsp ajvar (or some other pepper spread)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8.8 oz (250 g) cottage cheese
  • 6.3 oz (180 g) sour cream
  • 3.5 oz (100 g) thinly sliced ham
  • Grated cheese
  • Fresh parsley or chives

  1. Make the sponge: separate whites from yolks. Beat whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form. Add yolks to it, then milk and ajvar. In the end, add sifted flour with baking powder.
  2. Preheat oven to 356 F (180 C).
  3. Lightly grease baking sheet dimensions 87.5 inch x 100 inch (35 x 40 cm) and cover with parchment paper.
  4. Spread the sponge batter evenly onto it. Bake for 15-20 minutes (test with skewer). While hot, roll it together with parchment paper, beginning from the longer side. Let stand until it cools completely.
  5. In the meantime, make the filling: combine cottage cheese with sour cream. Add salt, pepper and fresh chopped parsley and / or chives.
  6. Spread rolled sponge and put the filling over it surface, evenly. Sprinkle with grated cheese and place thin ham slices over the surface. Roll it back in and let cool in the fridge.
