  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan with waxed paper. Grease paper; set aside.
  2. Beat eggs 3 minutes. Gradually add granulated sugar; beat until mixture becomes thick and lemon-colored, about 2 minutes. Stir in water, 1 teaspoon almond extract and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. In another bowl, combine dry ingredients; fold into egg mixture. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan.
  3. Bake until cake springs back when lightly touched, 12-15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Invert onto a kitchen towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Meanwhile, beat cream, confectioners' sugar and remaining extracts until soft peaks form. Refrigerate half of the whipped cream. Chop 1 cup almonds; fold into remaining cream. Unroll cake; spread with jam to within 1/2 in. of edges. Top with almond mixture.
  5. Roll up again. Place seam side down on a serving platter. Frost top, sides and ends with remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate, covered, about 1 hour. Top with remaining almonds; serve, if desired, with raspberries and mint. Yield: 10 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"Lovely and delicious. Plan to make again for Valentine's Day. Will add some fresh berries with the jam to brighten the flavor. Always get recipe requests when I serve this."
