Lemon Marmalade Cream Sponge Cake Roll-Gluten Free

There's always a reason for cake.
Tea time, a book group meeting, brunch with your family, heck just because.

But for us gluten free folk, it isn't as easy as stopping at the local bakery to pick up a wonderful treat.

Luckily, this variation of a classic sponge cake bakes up in a short 6 minutes, and you can cool and fill it within 25 minutes.
So the next time a friend calls to say that they are popping by, stir up this quick cake and listen to the ooohs and ahhs.

I sift confectionery sugar on a dry flat weave tea towel( not terry cloth), then turn the cake out onto the towel.
Roll the cake (on the long side) with the cloth as a buffer between each turn/layer. Let it rest for a minute or threw then unroll and and let rest for a bit before you spread with lemon Marmalade and whipped cream Re-roll. This seems to help keep the roll from tearing so easily
