  • Gradually add 1/3 cup sugar beating on high till sugar is almost completely dissolved.
  • Thoroughly wash beaters.
  • In separate bowl beat egg whites on medium speed till soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add the 1/2 cup sugar, beating till stiff peaks form.
  • Fold egg yolk mixture in with egg whites.
  • Sprinkle flour mixture over egg mixture, folding gently just till combined.
  • Spread batter evenly in the pan.
  • Bake 375°F for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Cake should spring back when touched lightly.

    I've made this recipe twice and there are never left overs - people fight over the last piece. I followed the recipe step by step. The only thing I did differently was to line the pan with parchment paper to make my life easier. Thank you!!!

    This dessert was fantastic! I used French Vanilla ice cream then layered it with hot fudge and finely chopped pecans before rolling it up. Then I stuck it back in the freezer for everything to firm up. Extremely good cake roll! This is so flexible that you can change up the ice cream flavors, toppings and nuts to make a wide array of different combinations. The kids REALLY enjoyed digging into this. I got all kinds of compliments around the table! Thank you for sharing Homegirl!

    This is a great recipe. I used parchment paper in my jelly roll pan. It came out very easy. I used peppermint stick ice cream. It eas fantastic!

    I made this cake, my first time trying to make a roll cake by myself. I don't know what exactly happened, maybe I didn't cook it long enough. I cooked it for the whole 15 minutes. Maybe it was using the cooking spray with flour instead of the butter and flour on the pan. Anyway, I plopped it out onto a lightly powdered towel and rolled it until completely cooled and then very gently unrolled it, but it had cracked all over the tightest end. I still tried to use it! I rolled it up the best I could and then wrapped it and placed back in the freezer. A few hours later I gave it to my brother for his birthday (he requested this cake). He said it was really good. I didn't get a chance to taste it. I will be making this again, now it's a challenge-get the cake perfect!!! If I can accomplish that, I will rate it again with 5 stars. Thanks for posting, it was exactly what he asked for!!!
