I have a recipe which says to use a "jelly roll" pan. Can you please tell me what size exactly a jelly roll pan is? I have a baking sheet that is 17 1/2" x 12 1/2" x 1" deep. I actually have always used it for cookies. Is this a jelly roll pan?

We are trying to make a blueberry coffee cake and it says to use a jelly roll pan. We see pictures, but how deep is it? They say it is a cookie sheet with sides. Can you help us?


Jelly Roll PanAnswer:

Jelly Roll Pan - A wide, flat pan similar to a cookie sheet or baking sheet with sides. The sides are 1-inch (2.54 cm) deep.

The most all-purpose size to have is a 12½ x 17½ by 1 inch Jelly Roll Pan.

These pans were intended for baking the sheet cake or sponge cake used in making jelly rolls. Jelly roll pans are handy for many other uses such as for roasting vegetables and baking cookies.
