That depends somewhat on what you make for a cake.

My SO has a pumpkin cake roll recipe that's out of this world with a flavored cream cheese filling but that may not be the best thing for another type of cake.

Do you mean a Jelly Roll?

My Mother used to make them with, of course, Jelly..

but also melted down chocolat chips!

haven't had one in years..

I think she always just bought a box of White Cake mix?

If the cake is chocolate, I'd vote for a really good raspberry jam.

If the cake is vanilla, I'd go with a chocolate mousse type thing, but, depending on what you're aiming for, an orange marmalade or lemon curd.

I'm with clare on teh raspberry jam for chocolate cake. Blueberry jam goes great with yellow cake. Although, it's quite easy to turn a blueberry muffin mix, or two into a suitable cake for your jelly roll.

Pastry Cream goes with all cakes, and can be flavored with cherry, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, lemon, cream cheese, etc. It's the morther sauce of creme fillings.

Nutella makes a great filling, especially when mixed half 'n half with chocolate buttercream frosting. Think devil's food cake with Nutella/chocolate frosting. But then, you have a cake roll, rather than a jelly roll.

Vanilla butter cream combined with peanut butter is great. Honey and buttercream is great. Cream cheese frosting mixed with crushed pineapple is a winner. Add coconut and have a pina colada filling.

The ideas really are endless. Play with what kind of cake flavor you want to use, and pair it with a complimentary flavor.

Food & Wine magazine had a great recipe for Dark Chocolate Mousse Filling, which can also be made with milk chocolate or white chocolate

I like chocolate cake with either vanilla ice cream or coffee ice cream as a filling. I love frozen chocolate cake roll with ice cream in the swirls.
