The flavor of raspberry, lemon, and ginger together is a flavor that brings me back to my childhood. I used to always enjoy plain yogurt with raspberry or strawberry jam swirled together. When you make your own jam, you get to enjoy the freshness and taste of the ingredients you’re using vs. using a store bought jam packed with preservatives. If you keep this sealed tight in the fridge, it can last just about two weeks long. This recipe is great for toast, thumbprint cookies, or even a raspberry mimosa for the adults out there! Either way, it’s a great addition to any kitchen to have some jam.
Do you have a ton of oranges or simply want to just brighten up your morning? Then this is the jam for you! I have to say, I normally keep strawberry or peach jam on hand during the springtime, but my new favorite is this orange and ginger, it’s fresh and flavorful. And for all those bakers, this would be great in a citrus sponge roll cake!
Yield 1 cup
2 cups chopped oranges, peeled, cleaned, and sliced

1.5 cups Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks, room temperature
4.5 cups powdered sugar
2.5 tsp. water
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Grease and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a stand mixer, beat the egg replacer and sugar together for 1-2 minutes. Add the orange juice and almond extract. Beat until combined.
Add the flour, salt and baking powder into the batter, until fully combined.
Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and bake for 11-16 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from the oven. Lay a sheet of parchment paper on top of a towel. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to prevent the cake from sticking. Carefully flip the cake pan on top of the parchment paper. Remove the parchment paper and throw away.
Tightly roll the towel with the cake into a log shape and allow to cool for 30 minutes or until room temperature.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and half of the powdered sugar until combined. Add the vanilla and remaining powdered sugar and mix until frosting forms; about 3-4 minutes.
Carefully unroll the log and spread the frosting in a single layer. Cover the frosting with the strawberry jam.
Re-roll the cake back up into a log shape.
Frost the cake with the remaining butter cream and top with orange zest and mint leaf.
Place in freezer for the butter cream to set for 1-2 hours or overnight for best results.
Serve and enjoy.
Chef’s tip: Move quickly when cooling this cake, or it will crack and break when you go to roll it.
Are you getting tired of using butter on your toast each and every morning for breakfast? Taking some fresh peaches and mashing them up to create a fresh jam is super easy. Store bought food just is not cutting it anymore and this is a much better alternative to those varieties. Spread this peach jam on your toast and artisan sandwiches or wherever you’d like.
Hot diggity jam! Who would of thought mashed up fruit would taste this good? But what makes this particular recipe taste even better is that it’s made with fresh, local strawberries! Made with three simple ingredients, you’ll never look at store-bought jam the same way again. Once and for all, it’s time to ditch the sugar-laden fruit spreads for this mouthwatering jam. Spread it on toast, biscuits, bagels, pancakes and more!
