Ice Cream Cake Roll

Recipe Ingredients

Cake Roll

4 eggs, separated

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup cake flour

1/4 cup baking cocoa

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 cups ice cream, softened

Chocolate Sauce

2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate

1/4 cup butter

2/3 cup evaporated milk, heated to 160 to 170 degrees F

1 cup granulated sugar


In a large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks on high for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until thick and lemon-colored.

Combine flour, cocoa and baking powder; gradually add to egg yolk mixture. Beat on low until well mixed (mixture will be thick).

Beat egg whites and salt until soft peaks form. Fold a small amount into batter until no streaks of white remain; add the remaining egg whites.

Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan; line with wax paper, then grease and flour paper. Spread batter evenly in pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.

Turn out onto a linen towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Peel off paper and roll up with the towel. Cool for 30 minutes.

Unroll cake; spread with ice cream to within 1 inch of edges. Roll up again (this time without the towel inside cake). Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until serving time.

Chocolate Sauce: In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt chocolate and butter.

Gradually add warm milk and sugar; stir constantly for 5 minutes or until completely dissolved. Spoon over slices of cake.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups sauce
