Chocolate Ice Cream Roll

Chocolate Ice Cream Roll

Ingredients
4 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup sugar divided
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
1 quart cookies and cream ice cream, softened

FROSTING:
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions
Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Line a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with waxed paper; grease the paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat egg yolks, baking powder and salt until slightly thickened. Stir in extracts. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Sift flour and cocoa together twice; gradually add to yolk mixture and mix well (batter will be thick).

With clean beaters, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold into batter. Spread into prepared pan.

Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 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.

Unroll cake; spread ice cream evenly over the cake to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up again. Cover and freeze until firm.

For frosting, in a large bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and cocoa; beat in the milk, butter and vanilla until smooth. Spread over cake roll. Cut into slices. Freeze leftovers. Yield: 10 servings.
