Ice Cream Cake Roll



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


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks on high for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  2. Gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until thick and lemon-colored.
  3. Combine flour, cocoa and baking powder; gradually add to egg yolk mixture. Beat on low until well mixed (mixture will be thick).
  4. 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.
  5. Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch pan; line with wax paper, then grease and flour paper. Spread batter evenly in pan.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
  7. Turn out onto a linen towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Peel off paper and roll up with the towel. Cool for 30 minutes.
  8. 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.
  9. Chocolate Sauce: In the top of a double boiler over hot water, melt chocolate and butter.
  10. 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
