DIRECTIONS

  • Cake:.
  • Combine eggs and sugar and beat until thick and lemon coloured, and a ribbon forms when you lift the beater, about 5 minutes.
  • Add vanilla and lime zest.
  • Fold in the dery ingredients carefully.
  • Spray a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan with cooking spray, line with wax paper or parchment, and spray again.
  • Spoon the batter carefully into the pan, smoothing it out into corners and being careful not to deflate it.
  • Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake!
  • While the cake is baking prepare a large towel (I use a bath towel) by laying it on the table and sprinkling with confectioners sugar. Tip the finished cake onto the towel, and working quickly, trim 1/8 inch off the edges of the cake. Roll up in the towel and set aside to cool.
  • Filling:.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar, juice and zest until smooth. (I'm going to add some green food colouring to make it more appropriate for St Patricks day).
  • Microwave in one minute intervals until mixture is thick and coats back of metal spoon. Remove from microwave and add butter, a little at a time, whisking smooth after each addition.
  • Let cool completely. Store for up to three weeks.
  • When cake is cool unroll it gently and spread with cooled lime curd. Carefully spread the whipped cream over that and roll back up.
  • If you have time, refrigerate for a few hours.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and slice carefully.
