    Bake jelly roll pan 20 to 25 minutes, loaf pan 35 to 45 minutes, or until top springs back when touched lightly in centre. Reserve loaf pan for another use. Cool jelly roll pan 10 minutes. Loosen cake from edges of pan; turn upside down onto towel sprinkled with icing sugar. Carefully remove parchment paper. Trim off stiff edges of cake if necessary.
