Jam Carrot rolls

Carrot rolls are a fantastic snack you can make at home with minimal effort. These rolls are made with grated raw carrots mixed with a few other ingredients, such as eggs, flour, and spices.

To add a touch of sweetness to this savory snack, you can fill the roll with jam. Plum jam is an excellent choice because it is flavorful and not overly sweet.

One of the best things about carrot rolls is that they contain minimal sugar, making them a healthy option for those looking to cut down on their sugar intake. Additionally, carrots are a great source of vitamins and minerals, which makes this snack a nutritious choice.

Carrot rolls with fruit jam

For making carrot rolls with marmalade, it is best to use firm red berries such as cranberries or currants.

The berries’ tartness complements the sweetness of the marmalade and adds a delightful burst of flavor to your dish.

When adding the berries, use only a small amount, as their intense flavor can easily overpower the other ingredients. Half a teaspoon is enough to add a perfect balance of flavor and texture to your carrot rolls.


  • 1 and 3/4 cups of coarse flour
  • 1/2 pound of Margarine
  • 1 cup of finely grated carrots (about 2-3 medium-sized carrots)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • Red Berries Jam
  • Icing sugar mixed with vanilla sugar for coating


  1. Add baking powder to the flour and crumble the margarine with the carrots.
  2. Form the dough.
  3. Roll out a sheet about 0.2 inches thick.
  4. Cut into squares of approx.2.5 x 2.5 inches
  5. Fill with marmalade, fold over and join into a triangle. You can use a fork to really bring the edges together.
  6. Place the finished rolls on a baking sheet and bake over medium heat until pink.
  7. While still hot, sprinkle or roll in icing sugar mixed with vanilla.

To make the work easier, you can use a tipping mold (filled pastry mold) for shaping. Make a circle on one side, then click with the marmalade, and the roll is born!
