Jam roll bread

Jam roll bread

Hey guys! The recipe I am posting today is of part wheat part refined flour. You can make it using full refined flour also. The jam is readymade. This bread is very easy to make and tastes really yummy with jam or peanut butter. Toast it lightly before serving. Lets get cooking….


Wheat flour – 1 and 1/2 cups

Refined Flour/Maida – 1 cup

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Dry Active Yeast – 1 and 1/2 tsp

Lukewarm Milk – 1 cup + 2 tbsp

Butter – 2 tbsp

Sugar – 1 tsp

Jam – 5-6 tbsp

Milk for brushing

Refined flour for dusting


1) In a big bowl sieve together the wheat flour and maida. To this add the salt and mix it well.

2) In a small vessel take the lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast and stir it a little. Cover and keep it aside for 10 minutes to let the yeast bubble. (Take care that the milk is neither too hot nor col. You should be comfortable to dip your finger in the milk without burning it or else the yeast will die).

3) After ten minutes check the yeast it will have formed a foamy layer on top. This means the yeast has activated well. If the yeast has not bubbled you need to throw the mixture away and start again.

4) Add this yeast mixture to the flour mixture and knead it into a loose dough. Add the butter after kneading it for 5 minutes and add the additional 2 tbsp milk also at this stage and knead it again for another minutes till it becomes little smooth. Cover this with a plate or cling wrap and keep it in an warm undisturbed place (preferably inside your oven, without switching it on) for an hour.

5) After an hour the dough will have doubled in size. Punch it in between to release the gas. Dust a little flour on the platform take the dough out on it and knead it well for 10 minutes till the dough is completely smooth.

6) Now roll the dough using the rolling pin in an one inch thick circle and apply jam all over it. Now roll the circle vertically forming a pinwheel. From the side press the pinwheel into a cylindrical form to the make it roughly the size of your baking tin.

6) Take the bread baking tin (rectangular in shape)and place the dough in the tin. Again place this tin in a warm place (do not cover the tin),for second proving, for another half an hour. After half an hour the dough will have risen and will fill the gaps on the side of tin.

7) Now brush the top of the bread with some milk and bake in a preheated oven, preheated for 10 minutes on 190 degrees, for 15 minutes at 190 degrees. Once done brush the top with butter immediately and cover with a cloth. Let it cool down completely before de-moulding and cutting to serve.

  1. Loved your post! It brought back wonderful memories from my childhood. My grandmother used to make jam rolled bread and we used to munch it while studying or playing at home. Many picnics were happier because of this lovely bread. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I did not know how to make it. Now that I have it with me, I will give my kids the same experience. All thanks to your post. Keep writing and spreading joy!


  2. I’m no good at baking (really, I’ve tried a few times!) but this jam roll bread looks so yummy. I like the fact that you have explained stuff like how hot the milk should be because people like me will not know it. Whereas people used to baking and cooking will think this is common sense.


  3. This is a great idea. I used to make these for my kids when they were in school but I used bread slices. I will try baking the bread next time.


  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe, it came up so good. You know yesterday I made a cake out of bread sides, the sides we cut while making sandwiches many times and it was so yumy 🙂


  5. This looks lovely. The bread looks perfectly baked. Reminded me of my childhood when mom used to make me pinwheel sandwiches for the tiffin box with different types of jams and spreads each time.


  6. Looks yummy and your recipe as always makes it sound so easy. I am not good at baking at all – in fact, I always manage to burn it when I do it in my convection oven. During the lockdown, though I tried some simple Banana bread and apple cinnamon cake in the cooker…turned out good. Can I do this in the cooker as well instead of the oven? If yes, timings pls…and any other tips that I need to follow.


    • Yup you can make this in cooker. Preheat your cooker by removing the ring and whistle of the cover on medium flame for 10.mins. then place the bread tin in and cook on low flame for 15 mins. The whistle and ring of the pressure cooker top should be removed.


    • Yes you can make it without yeast but the proportions of all ingredients will change. I will try to post a recipe of bread without yeast.


  7. What a lovely post. I made breads out of chocolates but never got any idea about making it with jam too. Kids love Jan anyway and healthy breast recipe that includes jam would be an add on. Loved your recipe.


  8. Thanks to the lockdown, I am baking so much new these days..and your recipe definitely adds into the list, also it sounds so good for kids. Thanks for sharing.


  9. Seems like simple and easy recipe. I never tried baking bread at home. I will try this one. I usually use yeast for making butter naan.


  10. I have recently started to cook (watching youtube and under the supervision of expert, My mother or wife :P). I intend to try this recipe and make a bread. Jam-Bread Sandwich is my daughter’s favorite. Thanks a ton for writing this.
